The Forum launched its Depolarizing Conversations work in 2021 in response to the contentious public dialogue emerging around the COVID-19 vaccine.
The guide compiles what we learned from that project about depolarizing contentious conversations of all sorts. In these pages, you’ll find concrete tools for navigating this kind of challenging conversation with coworkers, family members, friends, and acquaintances, regardless of the topic.

Importantly, these tools are for tackling conversations with people you are connected to and intend to stay in relationship with. They are tools for strengthening communities and families in times of conflict and distrust.
