Brene Brown is one the nation's most sought-after thought leaders. Through her research, writing & speaking, she has given women important insights to achieve confidence and clarity. 

More importantly, she champions respectful and civil dialogue about issues that matter. She urges the public to reject the false dichotomy of having to pick sides, as if every debate is divided into competing teams. 

Brown has spoken to the issue of hateful rhetoric in today's polarizing political climate. 

"When we use dehumanizing language, it says much more about us than the people that we're railing against…and it chips away at your soul," Brown said in a recent interview. 

Her approach to conversing with those she disagrees is something more of American society should adopt. It's powerful way to champion women of all viewpoints and create a healthier national dialogue and mindset.
