What is Intergroup Dialogue?

Intergroup dialogue (IGD) is a facilitated and sustained critical-dialogic practice that encourages listening and voicing across differences, fosters shared understanding and learning, and cultivates social justice commitments.

By blending content knowledge and experiential learning, intergroup dialogue supports participants in exploring different and intersecting social identities, intergroup conflicts, and issues of power, privilege and oppression while building connections across social divides in schools, colleges and communities. As a complement to social justice advocacy and organization, intergroup dialogue helps participants develop essential skills for engaging in collective efforts to create change.
