What to expect from BridgingTheGap

Everyone at the Table

BridgingTheGap Forums facilitate collaboration across generations and industry sectors. All stakeholders are represented and ready to co-create solutions that address their challenges.

New Perspectives

Too often the same leaders come together to discuss the same challenges. Forums reserve seats for visible minorities and marginalized talent to be part of the solution.

Action Oriented

This is not another initiative to talk about change we need. Forums focus on turning ideas into action. Attendees collaborate to advance shared goals and identify tangible ways to contribute to joint projects.
