About this event

This program is part of the UNUM: Democracy Reignited series in partnership with Florida Humanities, which explores the past, present and future of the American idea — as it exists on paper, in the hearts of our people, and as it manifests in our lives.  Find the full series online here: https://tlh.villagesquare.us/democracy-reignited/

Chloé Valdary has a refreshing and humanizing approach to the fraught moment we’re in and a completely different take on how we achieve can heal racial division and hatred inside our organizations and across society in general. Chloé sees bigotry as expressing a deep loss of sense of self in the bigot—and she teaches people to overcome bigotry by reaching for their humanity (and understanding their own). The 3 laws of enchantment: “treat people like human beings not political extractions,” “criticize to lift up and empower, never to tear down and destroy,” and “root everything you do in love and compassion.”

After spending a year as a Bartley fellow at the Wall Street Journal, Chloé Valdary developed The Theory of Enchantment, an innovative framework for compassionate antiracism that combines social emotional learning, character development, and interpersonal growth as tools for leadership development in the boardroom and beyond. She has also lectured in universities across America, including Harvard and Georgetown. Her work has been covered in Psychology Today Magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall St Journal. You’re not going to want to miss this one.
