Rose Table Dialogues
A Rose Table Dialogue is a two-session moderated roundtable dialogue of 20-25 diverse leaders and experts who address a specific issue involving sports values. The first 90-minute session refines the issue. The second session uses the collective intelligence around the table to recommend solutions. Ideally those around the table represent the stakeholders involved in the issue so that they can act in their own ways as a result of the dialogue. They are also leaders who can speak or write about these issues to broader audiences.
THE ROLE OF SPORTSCASTING & JOURNALISM IN PROMOTING SPORTSMANSHIP IN SOCIETY
This Rose Table Dialogue will engage sportscasters and writers to address ways the public can see more acts of sportsmanship in coverage of games and other aspects of the sport. How do sports journalists and game-casters bring these heroic and generous acts into their coverage? What else can they do to advance these positive values in sports while being true to their professions?
I don’t even think you know how great you really are. I believe in you.
