The Perspectives Exchange Laboratory (PX Lab)
TCMC is looking for a few good men and women (18 years and older) to assist us in the development of our new offering, The Perspectives Exchange Laboratory, (PX Lab).
At PX Lab, we believe in the value of your experiences and insight. Our purpose is to provide a venue where individual perspectives are shared through bold conversations. We aim to build a place to be heard and to learn from listening that's centered on a foundation of courage, authenticity, respect, and engagement.
We have created a discussion group structure and we need you to help us test it. Volunteers will select from a provided list of topics that may interest them.
Each topic will be the subject of a video conference. We’ll review the content together, each person will get two minutes to share their perspective, and then we’ll transition to open discussion.
We will attempt to accommodate everyone’s scheduling preferences. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to express interest. The first batch of focus group volunteers will be selected by Apr. 9th.
Please share this with anyone you think would be interested. Thank you!

Jane Gilgun, Professor, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities is looking for men to interview for research on success stories, stories of men who have coped with and overcome adversities.
