Revive your commitment to civility! All are warmly invited to Civility Matters: Talking Together on
Wednesday, April 18, 2018 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Stone Harbor Conference Center, Room A & B
107 N. First Ave., Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available begin-ning at 5 pm.
The program will begin at 5:30 with key note speaker, Dr. Kay Collier McLaughlin, author of six books including Talking Together: Getting beyond Polarization through Civil Dialogue. Rather than focusing on how awful the current conversation in our society is, Dr. McLaughlin will focus on changing the conversation. She not only offers tools, but she also offers hope as a roadmap to action based on good practices of civil dialogue. As a leadership consultant, she travels throughout the country and beyond, offering experiential sessions that provide an opportunity for people of differing experiences, opinions, and perspectives to have an true dialogue with one another, Collier has a unique background as a musician and the daughter of an NFL championship football coach, both adding fascinating perspective to her work as consultant, author, and speaker. Joining her to facilitate the evening’s discussion on the topic will be Mary Louise Dean, artist and Talking Together presenter/facilitator, formerly of Milwaukee and now residing Kentucky. They are both spending two weeks of April in residency with Write On, Door County. Signed copies of Dr. Collier’s book will be available for purchase; check or cash ($17.99+tax).
Music will be provided by Cathy Grier, Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Filmmaker, Female Blues Guitarist and Creative Force. Cathy’s multi-dimensional guitar technique, her talents on slide and harmonica, her gutsy vocal range, and her unique song craft, will thrill those in attendance with her performance.
