Transforming workplace culture through human connection.
Welcome! We look forward to engaging with organizations large and small. In our current climate where every industry wrestles with polarization, harmful conflict and issues of belonging, World Outside My Shoes works with your community to see the opportunities to embed restorative practices and strategies for creating safe workplace environments.
We do this by coming along side your teams to learn about your values, expectations, and practices so as to discover opportunities to infuse connection through curiosity. Our hope is that integrating the philosophy of World Outside My Shoes will further strengthen the connective tissue within your organization.
All of our available presentations and learning opportunities seek to achieve the following:
- Explore methods and tools for effective introspection so as to meet differences with curiosity.
- Challenge our own identity and examine assumptions we make within the stories we tell and are told.
- Build our capacity to navigate the complexities of interpersonal conflict through case studies, testimonies, and stories that illustrate World Outside My Shoe’s values, and the innovation of those who have done so successfully, our Rwandan Partners and friends.
- Examine the dynamics and relationships of our social landscape through the lens of social, emotional, and neurological intelligence.

Let's work together!
World Outside My Shoes also works in professional settings, work retreats, conferences, and more. Each interactive engagement is tailored to your context.
Interactive Assemblies & Presentations in Corporate settings
No matter where you are in the world, our 30- to 90-minute presentations are available both in-person or online.
Through a series of stories, we cover moments from the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsis in Rwanda all the way through to the nation’s reconstruction and dynamics today.
FILM SCREENINGS WITH LIVE OR VIRTUAL Q&A
A favorite addition to any World Outside My Shoes visit is the screening of the documentary I’m Not Leaving, followed by an in-person or virtual Q&A session with Carl Wilkens.
Using interviews, archival footage, and animations, the 40-minute film I’m Not Leaving serves as an excellent resource to help your audience prepare for a visit from Carl Wilkens or as a supplement to lessons about the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.
Rwanda Educational Immersive Experience
“How can people live together peacefully when betrayal, murder, and genocide is such a recent part of their history?” That’s the question we address as we traverse the scenic hills of Rwanda for 10 days visiting memorials and school campuses, farms and factories, speaking with survivors, perpetrators and government officials, all working together to build a new Rwanda.
