Help Me Speak at SXSW 2018!

A couple weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to apply for an opportunity to speak at the annual South by Southwest Conference (SXSW) next March with my thesis advisor Dave Snowden. This is a massive opportunity to share my thesis work on structural conflict transformation and SenseMaker® with a large group of people and I need your help! All it will take is a vote.

Here is the description from PanelPicker:

“City Hall must navigate competing priorities while sitting at the intersection of complex, deep-seated conflicts that evade simple solutions. The interactive session introduces an innovative approach to civic engagement to capture citizens’ voices and identify patterns that can be used to resolve structural conflicts and build more equitable cities. By developing human sensor networks, city governments can overcome partisan politics and revolutionize their role in addressing systemic problems.”

If accepted, we will be conducting a pilot study in cities in the United States (and elsewhere) to lay the foundation for the session’s interactive portion. This will be my first opportunity to field test my SenseMaker® design and apply the approach to conflict transformation. If you want to help me make this dream a reality…
