Discussions Across Differences

 

Ameren is introducing a free video series designed to increase the comfort level of being involved in sometimes difficult dialogues involving diversity and inclusion. Conversations like this take courage - The Courage to Be All In.


We encourage community organizations, businesses and other groups to use these tools to engage teams in conversations about the role courage plays in making a difference for yourself and others.


Each video features a conversation facilitated by Karen Foss with selected leaders in our community. With each video, we provide a facilitator guide, participant booklet and presentation deck for your use.
