Asia Society Hong Kong Center is proud to host a dialogue between Professor Francesca Cornelli, Dean of Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, Donald P. Jacobs Chair in Finance, and professor of finance, and S. Alice Mong, President of Asia Society Hong Kong Center. This dialogue will focus on bridging diverging views in an increasingly fractious world. Dean Cornelli and Ms. Mong will discuss the common missions shared by Kellogg's new Center for Enlightened Disagreement, which emphasizes conflict management, empathy, and the diversity and inclusion of views across Kellogg's programs, and the Asia Society, which has long endeavored to promote mutual understanding and strengthen partnerships across the Pacific.

How can institutions create spaces that bridge cultural and ideological divides, driving positive change and innovation? How can we embrace disagreement as a virtue? What work is needed to foster greater inclusion and diversity in institutions, while allowing for respectful and empathetic debate and discussion of different viewpoints? Join ASHK to consider these challenging questions, and more.
