research-informed event design
We design and facilitate events to assist organizations in creating a culture of positive and emotionally intelligent interactions. We can come to your office, school, meeting, or even your bat mitzvah!
These events, more structured than a cocktail party but less structured than the traditional model of training, are custom designed for the audience, but offer a real experience of shared vulnerability that bonds groups and builds participants’ muscles for empathy and authenticity.
Some reasons why
Provide an equitable conversational space that helps underserved & marginalized groups feel a greater sense of belonging and inclusion.
Offer a structured opportunity for self-reflection and insights.
Foster a healthier collaborative environment.
Improve camaraderie within a group.
Increase empathy & meaningful interactions among your team members.
Help people practice healthy boundaries in real time.
Decrease loneliness & social isolation.
Improve communication skills.
PUBLIC AND TICKETED EVENTS
Do you wish you could have more of the kinds of conversations you have late at night where for some reason, you feel safe talking about the things you actually care about? We host events twice a month where you can do just that at Aeronaut Brewing Company in Somerville, MA. This cozy spot is a favorite with locals, with a vaguely rustic interior, giant vats of beer, and, of course, great conversations.
We'll give you some structure and ground rules to make sure everyone feels comfortable and safe sharing as much of themselves as possible. We'll strive to provide a space where you can push your comfort zone in talking openly while still feeling in complete control of how much you divulge. Ashley, our founder, will be available to talk if tough subjects come up.
We often sell out before the event, so get your tickets early! We'd love to have you!
