What it’s all about
Bridge Builders is focused on how to have challenging conversations about discrimination in the workplace and daily life. Each event starts with some education and current research presented by one of our organizers, then later we split into small groups for discussion.

DATA & RESEARCH
Your educational journey can start with us or be supplemented by us as we share some of the latest research and thinkpieces on how diversity, representation and inclusion can be done well.
At each event, we break up into small group discussions to facilitate learning and interaction. You will have tangible takeaways and tactics to use after you leave the room.
We have a strict Code of Conduct to ensure underrepresented and marginalized voices can get heard and for everyone to interact in a comfortable, safe manner.
