2019: NGen Fellows / Upswell Chicago


[mp_span col=”12″]

The 2019 American Express NGen Fellows cohort presented at Upswell in Chicago from November 13-15, 2019. Their session, “Activating Collective Purpose Through Your Story,” allowed participants to invite vulnerability in the task of sharing personal journeys.

Session Description:

Social change work is personal. Informed by our individual and collective histories, our movements are rooted in relationship–an invitation to dissolve the traditional boundaries between personal and professional, and bring our whole selves to our work. Join the 2019 American Express NGen Fellows for a workshop on stories. Participants will be invited to tap into their innate storytelling ability, sharing alongside fellow change makers as we reconnect with our personal inspiration and each other. Bring your (whole) self…and a pen.

Participants were provided this handout to help map their narrative.
