I‘m Reva Patwardhan. I‘m the founder of Dialogue Lab.


I believe that a movement is as strong as the relationships that hold it together. 

And I've seen how differences within social change organizations turn into cultures of mistrust, disrespect, and burn out. But I believe our diversity can be our greatest strength.

We can do so much better. We can be stronger. We can be unstoppable.

And we begin with a single, liberating conversation.
