Activating Collective Purpose Through Your Story

Location: Salon A-1 (Lower Level)

Social change work is personal. Informed by our individual and collective histories, our movements are rooted in relationship–an invitation to dissolve the traditional boundaries between personal and professional, and bring our whole selves to our work. Join the 2019 American Express NGen Fellows for a workshop on stories. Participants will be invited to tap into their innate storytelling ability, sharing alongside fellow change makers as we re-connect with our personal inspiration and each other. Bring your (whole) self…and a pen.

Sponsored by American Express

Please note that our hope is to build a container conducive to sharing personal stories. We’ll need to close the doors to new participants once the session begins.
