Research, online program designed to help government admins bridge political divide

American City & Council|November 15, 2022

Researchers concluded via a randomized controlled trial of participants that “governments can leverage these practical tools to strengthen collaboration and repair fissures in local government,” according to a statement about the findings. Participants who completed the program were better able to recognize the limits of their own knowledge, become more open to the viewpoints of others, view people holding different beliefs with less animosity and more warmth, and think about potentially divisive issues in a more nuanced way.
