Please join us for our Diversity, Race and Conflict Series to hear Jonathan Haidt, author of The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom, and of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion.

Jonathan Haidt is a professor of psychology at the NYU-Stern School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992 and then did post-doctoral research at the University of Chicago and in Orissa, India.His research focuses on morality - its emotional foundations, cultural variations, and developmental course.  He is the co-developer of Moral Foundations theory, and of the research site YourMorals.org. He uses his research to help people understand and respect the moral motives of their enemies (see CivilPolitics.org, and see his 2008 TED talk). He was the 2004 winner of the Virginia "Outstanding Faculty Award."

This week's Call to Action is to complete the quiz at www.YourMorals.org and use your results to explore your morality and how it influences your relationships with others.
