Gratitude for our diverse differences creates a bridge to belonging

When it comes to corporate training and DEI programs, it's easy to get in the habit of thinking over feeling.



We get it. Even at the highest levels of success, business leaders and their teams are isolated and disconnected. We help companies create meaningful connection through the 7:47 Gratitude Experience — an evidence-based framework that helps leaders build community and strengthen relationships. In the past 5 years, 7:47 has sparked over 500,000 relationships around the dinner table, helping companies build cultures of connection, well-being, and purpose.
