3 tips for creating change (from Dr. Bronwyn King)
1. Assume people with different views are coming from a good place. Put all frustration and anger to the side. Be patient and be kind. Concentrate on what you do have in common and go from there. Most importantly – keep talking.
2. Change does not happen because it is the right time, because society is ready or because it is simply the right way forward. Change happens because individuals, organizations and movements mobilize and champion issues that are important to them. Every voice is important.
3. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you really want – what you really believe in. There will always be people who will criticize or try to dissuade you. Sidestep around them and never lose focus on your goal.
