BRIDGE Storytelling Workshops



In times of drastic change, it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists!




— Eric Hoffer

Storytelling Workshops:
Knowledge is Change

Developed and facilitated in partnership with Wiley Davi, Professor of English & Media Studies at Bentley University and Nancy Newman, Teaching Associate at Brown University, the BRIDGE storytelling workshops are interactive sessions that address a variety of topics under the themes of The Workplace, The Marketplace and The Workforce.

Disrupting the current education models, BRIDGE removes the clinical aspect of training and implements a human-to-human approach acknowledging that this work is challenging and emotional. Our storytelling workshops help shape our brains, tie strangers together and move us to be more empathetic and respectful of different lived experiences. We tackle the difficult issues by creating awareness without creating resistance and defensiveness to drive real collaborative change.

Through a matrixed and modular offering, our workshop topics include: How the Brain Works; How to Work the Brain; Dismantling Company Culture; Inequities in the Aisle, The Optics of Advertising and more.
