We all have stories to tell. So what’s the secret to a story that has the power to create change?

Join us on Thursday, February 21 for an evening of dynamic storytelling. Hear how these women have harnessed the power of story to influence and inspire in their careers and their personal lives. Then, practice your own storytelling skills through a hands-on workshop where you’ll craft a compelling narrative, starting with the story of You.


- Define and craft your personal narrative

- Get to the heart of your stories

- Use story to make an impact

Hosted by Myra Sandoval, Director of Story, Design Innovation at Visa

With Kimberly Brizzolara, Founder, Brands that Get You and Director of Strategy & Editorial at Bartlett Brands

Sabra Meretab, Product Manager at Visa and filmmaker

and Carly Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief at Google

Everyone is welcome to attend WILD events, however, please take measure of your own privilege and give space to those from marginalized populations.
