I am passionate about:
fostering deep and meaningful connections between individuals, groups and tribes to create collective senses of belonging inspiring a society that embodies gratitude, compassion, humility and interdependence in our institutions and systems.
A little known fact about me is:
I failed in my pursuit of getting a PhD in Environmental Engineering at Stanford before pivoting into a program in Public Policy
Hi Angie, thank you for your insightful and thoughtful message. We are ultimately hoping to creating a learning collaborative/incubator in which we explore all of the domains that go into creating such spaces for different contexts. Physical and virtual spaces are definitely a part of the "environment" domain. The two other domains we are focusing on are human interaction and technology. We aim to create an ecosystem within with facilitators, tech-focused people and those focused on the environment (built or natural) can come together and work collectively instead of as competitors to create such spaces for different contexts.
Our initial pilot programs will take different approaches in different domains, some physical, some virtual, some directly facilitated, some passive following more of a guiding program of sorts. If you'd be interested in being a part of this ecosystem of collaborators we have a growing list and I'd love to add you to it!
