TED Circle - Leading with Curiosity
Each month we will watch a TedTalk together on Zoom and discuss it. This month's theme is Leading with Curiosity. The TEDTalk we will watch is called "Why I Have Coffee With People Who Send Me Hate Mail."
Özlem Cekic's email inbox has been full of hate mail since 2007, when she won a seat in the Danish Parliament -- becoming the first female Muslim to do so. At first she just deleted the emails, dismissing them as the work of fanatics, until one day a friend made an unexpected suggestion: to reach out to the hate mail writers and invite them to meet for coffee. Hundreds of "dialogue coffee" meetings later, Cekic shares how face-to-face conversation can be one of the most powerful forces to disarm hate -- and challenges us all to engage with people we disagree with.
