What truly sets us apart from other DEI trainers is our leadership pipeline. Building Bridges is not just focused on training adults in anti-oppression and communication, our work starts with teens. Transform is the engine where all of our change begins and because of that, 30% of all Shift revenue is invested back into our youth program. We also train and hire our own Transform Alumni as facilitators in Shift. Investing in us as your DEI developers will not only change your organization, it will impact the lives of teens in the Metro Denver community.

  • 23+ years of proven impact in conflict transformation around anti-oppression topics
  • Diverse facilitator teams (intentional diversity of race, gender, ability, sexuality, religion, age)
  • Option of Building Bridges Alumni Facilitators (trained youth facilitators)
  • Dynamic, experiential approach
  • Intentional space to slow down, connect, listen, and learn from others in your group
  • Practical communication tools to increase the impact of your work

We are committed to equity and inclusion. We acknowledge the impacts of systemic inequity on communities and in organizations, and the unequal distribution of resources. We’ll do our best to work with your group’s budget. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss the possibilities!
