About This Learning Event

Wonder Well in the redwoods as you engage in Lunch & Learn at 1440 Multiversity, a new offering designed to help you find inspiration out of curiosity.

Enjoy a new kind of Lunch & Learn as you participate in an insightful workshop called Cultivating Creativity, led by 1440 Faculty Member and Circles International Founder Eliza Ramos, MPH, MSW. This workshop uses evidence-based tools and practices from the latest neuroscience research to engage the creative part of the brain in real time, and participants will tap into their own creativity and learn how creative practices can lead to better health and wellbeing. Eliza is a regular faculty member for 1440 philanthropic advocacy programs like Healing Our Healthcare Heroes and Healing Our Education Communities, and her compassionate approach to facilitation focuses at the intersections of wellbeing; leadership development; and diversity, equity and inclusion for a holistic learning experience.

Deeply nourishing and highly enjoyable, Lunch & Learn at 1440 provides a fulfilling opportunity to gather with purpose and connect with yourself and other like-hearted community members.
