#7 Dilafruz Khonikboyeva: Transformational Conflict

Dilafruz Khonikboyeva is a conflict practitioner focused on the role of stories and language in conflict, identity, and change. She is currently a Global Lead with the Aga Khan Foundation. She previously worked with the US Agency for International Development (USAID), CNN Pentagon, and the Atlanta-based 48 Hour Film Project. In this episode, Dilafruz explains how conflict can be transformational if we are willing to sit in the anxiety of perceived differences. She also provides practical advice for rules of engagement, so that we don’t let our feelings beat out reason and logic, which is critical for healthy conflict. Finally, Dilafruz sheds light on how we can better engage in uncomfortable conversations around race and social injustice vital to healing our communities.
