Deepening divisions in the United States, both politically and culturally, pose a threat to our country. The issue goes beyond a move to the right within the Republican party or to the left among Democrats, as extremism has marginalized long standing moderate political beliefs in both camps, and bipartisanship has been vilified. Our political system’s polarization and dysfunction harm our business environment and workplace culture.
Join the Niskanen Center and Business for America for this four-part webinar series to discuss the root causes of political polarization, its social and economic impacts, and what the business community can do to reduce division in their companies, in politics, and in our society.

At a time of deepening political and cultural divides, many Americans wonder whether anything can be done to“depolarize” our country. And the problem isn’t only on Twitter, Facebook, or Capitol Hill. Many companies are witnessing first-hand how contentious social issues create workplace conflict and reduce productivity.
America Talks is a powerful event that invites Americans to connect one-on-one, face-to-face on video across divides.
Realtime, face-to-face conversation is highly effective at dismantling the biases, prejudices, and stereotypes that fuel toxic polarization. Your company can be part of a culture shift in America.
