The Wiser Together Collaboratory is a working group of different generations who collectively have decades of experience designing and hosting meaningful conversations. We have each directly experienced the power of sharing and collaborating across generations, and our passion lives in the endless opportunities that emerge from these connections.
Wiser Together events bring wiser action into our organizations and communities by engaging new demographics and leveraging the unique gifts and contributions of every generation:
Wiser Together Cafés
Our multi-generational team designs and hosts powerful conversations – intentionally inviting people across generations to participate. These events serve as a “point of entry” for people to experience the power of multi-generational interaction and act as a catalyst for new thinking and inspired, collaborative action. These Cafés can be customized to fit the needs of any setting; in an organization, conference workshop, or larger community gathering.
We offer multi-day learning programs that provide additional tools, models and practices for effective multi-generational conversations and collaboration. These programs support individuals, communities and organizations who want to become multi-generational hosts and leaders, recognizing the possibilities of convening all the generations in strategic and authentic ways.
