WHAT ARE THE FACTS?
“In dramatic contrast to the surrounding region’s economic prosperity, the city of
Dallas has one of the highest concentrations of poverty in the nation. Many of these residents are unemployed or underemployed, preventing them from benefiting from the region’s economic growth. This opportunity gap is disproportionately affecting African-Americans and Hispanics, who represent a large and growing pool of potential middle-skill workers, just as the region needs to expand its talent pipeline.”
(JP Morgan Chase & Co., New Skills at Work Report, May 2015)

Our New Community Simulation
Designed to show your people:
- A vision for our flourishing as whole, complex people.
What it looks and feels like when we're not flourishing physically, emotionally, relationally, vocationally, financially, or spiritually.
The role we each play in fostering flourishing within our 9-5 jobs, in our families, and as neighbors.
How all the domains of education, healthcare, government, nonprofit, business, church, and family work together to create holistic flourishing.
And little things we can each tweak to better care for the people in our lives and the caregivers in our community.
Whether your goal is employee or member engagement and retention, professional development, or volunteer mobilization, this will help. Our experienced simulation Facilitator will work with you to define achievable goals for your event, identify strategic people to invite, promote your event, accomplish your goals, and follow up with participants in a meaningful way.
