Fielding Graduate University: Alumni conference

Fielding Graduate University: Alumni conference


On January 27th 2021, as part of Fielding Graduate University’s first Alumni Conference themed Global Leading and Learning in the Next Decade, CMMi board members co-organized a panel dialogue on “Overcoming Polarized Narratives”. Four of this year’s CMMi Fellows shared their work in this theme, and four of our board set the context and held the space.

In the context of global leading and learning in the next decade, we can say that overcoming polarized narratives is a key competence for leaders in the context of the relationships that they facilitate with their organizations, be they single entities, communities, networks, nations, or international cooperatives. From a communication perspective, we see the constitutive role of metaphor in overcoming polarized narrative as critical.
