Civil Discourse
“I’m just saying.” These three little words that tend to follow an intense debate are a signal that someone has given up on listening or being understood. They’ve dug into their position, and there will be no budging – an unfortunate symptom of living in a divided world. The lack of civil discourse and constructive conversations motivated the 24-year-old, 3x social entrepreneur Milan Kordestani to found The Doe – an anonymous digital publication promoting open-minded discussions and restoring civil discourse. In a world fueled by arguments and outrage, he offers insight and tools to navigate necessary difficult conversations, offering a much-needed infusion of kindness in an increasingly contentious society. He has written for numerous online publications, including Rolling Stone, Huffington Post,, ThriveGlobal, and other platforms. He regularly covers topics in entrepreneurship, self-help, startup culture, the environment, leadership and media.
