We’re excited to invite you to participate in the most exciting phase yet of the Real Dialogues project, their very first Google+ Hangout discussion! You may remember that the Real Dialogues D&D reality show was one of the winners of NCDD’s Catalyst Awards, and we are proud to see the project entering its production phase! Now you can participate in the project yourself by joining the conversation.
This first dialogue starts Tuesday, October 29th, at 5pm Central so make sure to email [email protected] immediately to sign up! They are specifically seeking participants from Illinois, so please also tell your IL friends about this great opportunity by having them check out the announcement below or pointing them to the original post on Real Dialogues’ website here.
Real Dialogues Fall Update: Entering Production Phase
After months of design work and preparation, our Catalyst Award project is finally entering its production phase!
We will be using Google+ Hangouts to host three rounds of facilitated small-group dialogues online on the issue of employment and the minimum wage in the greater Chicago, IL area:
- The first Hangout is for our participants to get to know each other and to explain and hear about their employment situations.
- The second Hangout will feature interviews with Conservative, Liberal and Alternative experts, who will also drop in to answer questions.
- The third Hangout aims to tie it all together: what have people learned, have they changed their perspectives, and will this affect their lives?
This first Hangout takes place Tuesday, October 29 at 5pm Central Time (that’s 3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern).
We are very pleased to welcome Susanna Haas Lyons as our facilitator. Susanna will be facilitating a group of people from the Chicago area to discuss work and the minimum wage. They include employees, employers, minimum wage workers, unemployed job seekers and other people interested in the issue.
We have a couple of spaces left for Illinois-based people to participate! If you live in Illinois and want to join, email [email protected] immediately, so we can get you set up.
Anyone can watch this Hangout and use the new Google+ Q&A feature to ask the participants questions (to ask a question or comment, you will be instructed to join or sign in to Google+).
