About
BRIDGE

CONNECTING AND LIBERATING COMMUNITIES

 

Bridge, (Ngāti Hauiti, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Hinemanu) is a 25 year old workshop facilitator passionate about fostering a sense of belonging in workplaces.

Her mission is to do this through making it easier to talk about emotions at work. With two years background as a physiotherapist, she knows the impact emotional wellbeing has on our physical health.

Quality education includes learning emotional language. For most of us, in our education system, this wasn’t an opportunity. Only in recent years has there been a spotlight on the importance of talking about our mental health for productivity of retention of team members at work.

With a lifetime experience of navigating a sense of belonging as a wahine Māori in Aotearoa, Bridge has a deep drive to centre belonging at work, for a more inclusive environment for everyone involved.
