//About Storytellers for Change

empathy First

We are a collective of multidisciplinary storytellers united by one purpose—to build a world of belonging.

To achieve this, we practice radical empathy, center historically unheard narratives, and work towards building an inclusive and equitable world. As storytellers, we believe our first and most important job is to be story-listeners. We believe the act of intentional listening is crucial to building and sustaining lasting change and we practice this core value in our storytelling, facilitation, workshops, projects, and story-centered consulting.

STORY-Centered

We believe storytelling and story-listening generate empathy and build more inclusive and equitable environments. This is why our Story-Centered approach is grounded on establishing opportunities for communities to come together to listen, learn, and develop partnerships to tackle complex social issues. 

From curating an event dedicated to celebrate young change makers to expanding access to clean water and oral health care, our Story-Centered approach is driving positive social change. Learn more >>
