Dialogue Institute Director of Education Rebecca Mays facilitated a dialogue training in July for about 30 U.S. government-sponsored exchange program alumni/ae, part of the Alumni Thematic International Exchange Seminars.

The overall seminar took place in Philadelphia, July 12-15, on the theme of "Building Resilient Communities: Religious and Ethnic Diversity." The DI's training focused on interfaith/ interreligious dialogue, using the DI's Dialogue Principles (developed originally by DI Founder and President Leonard Swidler) as a foundation.

Alumni Thematic International Exchange Seminars (TIES) are regionally-focused seminars for international exchange program alumni/ae, sponsored and funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and implemented by World Learning through a cooperative agreement.

Participants learn about key regional issues, receive training, and collaborate with fellow alumni/ae to implement community projects in their home countries upon their return.
