  • The Dignity Index Webinar, 6:00-7:30 p.m. online. Hosted by League of Women Voters of Utah: "The Dignity Index is an eight-point scale that measures what we do when we disagree. It ranges from one — which sees no dignity at all in the other side — to eight, which sees dignity in everyone. When we treat the other side with dignity, we make it easier to solve problems. When we treat others with contempt, we make it impossible to solve problems – because contempt takes away our ability to talk to each other. Join our webinar to hear Tami Pyfer, the Utah Lead of the Dignity Index Demonstration Project, discuss how the Index was applied in Utah with the 2022 federal candidates, lessons learned, and next steps for the Dignity Index project. REGISTER HERE."
