Discussions Across Differences 2021

Ameren offers a free video series, designed to increase the comfort level of being involved in sometimes difficult dialogues involving diversity, equity and inclusion. Conversations like this take courage - The Courage to Live Your Values In Uncertain Times.

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.

The video showcases a personal account of courage from Ameren co-workers, sharing a personal story about courage, equity, and challenges of living their values in uncertain times. With the video, we provide a facilitator guide, participant booklet and presentation deck for your use.
