Mónica is the Senior Fellow for Public Practice at the national cross-partisan depolarization organization Braver Angels, and in this fireside chat, she’ll share her experiences and help the audience gain tools for better understanding or even learning from people with a different or opposed worldview. https://bainbridgecf.org/news-and-events/bcfnews/leadhership-celebrating-women-leaders
