Building Bridges Towards Justice

BridgePeople was born in 2019 in response to the very deep and palpable divisions across our society, fueled by dominant and toxic leadership models, and by the dehumanizing myths of scarcity, superiority, and separation. Those of us who work to advance the social good know that it does not have to be this way.  We hold the collective power to transform the systems that oppress, dominate, separate, and dehumanize too many of us. 

BridgePeople partners with socially-minded leaders and organizations committed and ready to eradicate all forms of injustice through cross-cultural relational competencies, human-centered culture transformation, and inclusive & embodied leadership development.  

Our vision for the future is a network of interconnected, culturally competent local, regional, and global leaders who are accountable to the communities they serve and are willing to boldly shift power to eradicate the root causes of poverty and injustice in partnership with those most impacted.



Our Services

The BridgePeople Network is made up of a diverse and robust cadre of highly experienced and qualified professionals to support leaders and organizations at the forefront of equity and justice work. Our collective service offerings include:

Transformational Facilitation, Workshops,
& Retreats 

Conversations about race and other areas of exclusion are emotionally charged and require skilled trauma-informed facilitation and containers that can withstand differing perspectives and our full humanity. We model facilitated racial dialogue and co-create impactful workshops and retreats to meet your needs. 


Strategic Consulting & Culture Transformation

Dismantling anti-Blackness and other forms of exclusion in the workplace requires culture transformation. We facilitate strategic processes that move conversations beyond the superficial and toward deep engagement with key stakeholders to center the needs of those most impacted by systemic racism and other forms of exclusion.

Executive Coaching for Inclusive & Embodied Leadership

We support inclusive leaders in defining their own success and creating a plan to get there, while providing accountability and partnership along the way. We also equip emerging and executive leaders to facilitate honest and productive racial dialogue in ways that foster relationships and helps everyone be seen, heard, and valued.

In today's multicultural societies, cultural competencies are no longer a nice addition, they are a foundational requirement for effective and impactful leadership.
