How it works

The joy of the Moving Mountains event is participants get to follow the journey up Kilimanjaro with interactive breakouts to help participants overcome obstacles.


Along the way, you'll learn how to: 

1. Change the narrative. Listening to the experience of others allows us to create an environment that fosters diversity and inclusion, and that strengthens the entire group. 
2. Start where you are. Don’t wait until everything is perfect before you start. Starts can be messy, just do what it takes to move towards your goal in small increments daily.
 3. Bet on yourself. Believe in yourself first. Don’t allow other people to steal the wind from your sails. You’ll find support in surprising places once you decide you can do it. 
4. Nothing changes if nothing changes. What’s holding you back? Once you identify how you are getting in your own way, you can make small changes that move you towards your goal. 
5. Harness resilience for your path forward. This past year has challenged us all. How do we take the pain of our past and use it to transform ourselves into the stuff of legends?
