Tania Israel Speaking Topics

  • All I Need to Know About Political Conflict, I Learned From The Wizard of Oz

    Roiled by social media algorithms, provocative news, and clashing politicians, Americans are experiencing increased stress and interpersonal conflict. Appeals to elected officials, demands for media reform, and calls for “the other side” to change their tactics reveal frustration and paralyzing disempowerment. Drawing on a familiar and imaginative narrative, Dr. Israel takes her audience on a journey down the yellow brick road to help them navigate the challenges of living in politically polarized times. Attendees will gain knowledge, skills, and motivation to strengthen their individual capacity and perhaps even to repair our ruptured country.

  • Leadership in Politically Polarized Times

    Political polarization in the U.S. is at a record high. As anger, fear, distortions, and social media drive the wedge ever deeper, organizations and communities suffer the fallout of societal divisions. How can leaders combat polarizing forces, manage interpersonal conflict, and cultivate a public voice in this fraught context? Dr. Israel can offer solutions. Grounded in evidence, experience, and skills, she will share perspectives and strategies that will leave you informed, optimistic, and empowered to take action.

  • If You’re Not Listening, You’re Not Paying Attention: Dialogue as a Tool for Social Justice Advocacy

    “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention” is a rallying cry in social justice circles. Indeed, there is plenty to be outraged about; however, outrage has limitations, and prolonged outrage takes a toll on health. Science points to listening as an effective tool for collaboration, persuasion, and organizing. Dr. Israel harnesses psychological theory and research in this presentation to offer a blueprint for dialogue-based social justice advocacy.

  • Beyond Your Bubble: Skills and Strategies for Dialogue Across Political Differences

    It can be difficult to bridge the political divide. How do we talk with people who hold political views that are different from our own? Is there a path forward, out of conflict, toward understanding and healing? In this interactive workshop, Dr. Tania Israel will prepare attendees to engage in dialogue by helping them to build skills for listening, managing emotions, developing accurate perceptions of others, and sharing their views. This program uses an active-learning format and can be delivered in person or via Zoom, with demonstrations, mini-lectures, polls, discussion, and role plays. People of all political persuasions can benefit from this program.

  • Being Authentic, Empowered, and LGBTQ in the Workplace

    Description: What does it mean to be LGBTQ in the workplace? How much of ourselves do we share with coworkers? How do we navigate challenging situations and capitalize on strengths? With over 25 years of research and teaching about LGBTQ psychology, Dr. Tania Israel has some answers. This engaging presentation will inform and inspire attendees to achieve their potential for authenticity, empowerment, and belonging in the workplace.

  • Bridging the Political Divide: Optimism for Moving Beyond Polarization

    Political polarization in the U.S. is at a record high. As anger, fear, distortions, and social media drive the wedge ever deeper, what hope is there for maintaining connection within families, friendships, workplaces, and communities? Dr. Israel can offer solutions. Grounded in evidence, experience, and skills, she will share practical and research-based strategies to help bridge the political divide. Her approach to building understanding will leave you informed, optimistic, and empowered to take action.
