Bring Essential Partners to your community
Our differences can make us stronger, but only if we learn how to talk about them.
Across the United States and the globe, Essential Partners helps communities improve their ability to communicate across differences of identity, value, and belief. In urban areas and rural heartlands, in civic centers and campuses, in corporations and non-profits, our time-tested approach reduces polarization, improves mutual understanding, and strengthens social cohesion.
Every EP training, consultation, and facilitation is fully customized to meet your unique challenges and producing lasting results. Participants will gain the skills and tools they need to lead difficult but crucial conversations. Afterward, they'll receive continuing support that includes online resources, a peer-to-peer community of practice, and learning opportunities with our practitioners.
Depending on the need, partners and participants can receive:
- One-on-one preparation to meet your unique needs
- Customized training or facilitation
- Access to EP's resources
- Continued consultation from EP's expert practitioners
- Robust follow-up evaluations
- Opportunities for continued learning
- Online community of practice, available only to EP alumni
