LISTEN ON: APPLE PODCASTS | SPOTIFY | STITCHER
When I first heard about the impact that Brigit Ritchie was making within organizations like Google, I knew I had to learn more — and when I saw the empowering work she’s doing around the world, I knew I had to have her on the show!
Brigit’s vision is to help people develop rational mindfulness so that they can thrive in and out of the workplace, so she co-founded WE, an experiential development group that creates space for women to support women in LA through a twelve-week curriculum program that combines mindfulness practices, emotional intelligence tools, and inclusive leadership so that everyone can feel connected and safe. But Brigit leads these sessions across the world to create cultures of inclusion at companies like Google, Instagram, Lululemon, and much more.
