Identity & Belonging with Irina Feygina
Dr. Irina Feygina is a social psychologist who applies behavioral science and facilitation approaches to climate change policy and program development. She served as the Director of Behavioral Science and Assessment at Climate Central, and as a fellow on the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team. Irina joins Let's Get Real to talk about how our need for belonging affects our belief in climate change, how some of our core assumptions endanger us, and what actually influences people to take positive action. Nina and Irina also talk about what it really takes to have productive conversations with people who have different beliefs than our own. Irina shared openly about her own struggle to integrate the scientific method with more intuitive ways of knowing and how her own inner work mirrors what needs to happen in society.
