Bridge-builders are always in learning mode.

We are lifelong students of our own identity and other’s as well. One of the most common questions we are asked is “where do I learn more?”

It is a great question, and a layered question. We are all at different points in our journey and we have different educational interests. We have put together a working list for you to consider.

We regularly update our resources, so please check back often to see some new titles!
