Driving a Movement for Inclusive Leadership

Building Bridges has been equipping leaders with the skills they need to transform divides for more than 25 years. Based in Denver, Colorado, our work has evolved over time – from our roots in peacemaking abroad to our present focus on racial equity and intersectional liberation here at home.

With a core focus on communication and empathy, we develop youth and adults in diversity, equity and inclusion. Explore how we do this below!

Transform | Youth Program

Building Bridges: Transform brings together diverse young people from Metro Denver high schools for a year-long, life-changing, and empowering experience. Together, participants develop and deepen communication, relationship building, and leadership skills such as self-awareness, confidence, and empathy.

Shift | Adult Program

Building Bridges: Shift offers professional learning opportunities for adults looking to deepen their communication skills and understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We also provide customized DEI consultation for nonprofits and institutions.
