Becca Kearl

Breakout Session: Leveraging the Power of Conversation: Building Community, Understanding, and Relationship


Becca is an active community dialogue designer and organizer both locally in Provo, Utah and nationally through her role as a Managing Partner and Director of Programming at Living Room Conversations. She comes from a long line of storytellers and is always on the lookout for stories she may be missing in her understanding of the world. On any given day, Becca can be found thinking about the conversations we need to be having in our communities and then creating resources to make those conversations happen. As Founder and Director of the pilot initiative CourtWatch Provo, she combined data collection on cases dealing with domestic violence and sexual assault with regular community conversations to increase understanding awareness of the state's high incidence rates. At her core, Becca believes that as we understand the issues that face us and make space to hear lived experiences around those issues, we can make real change.
