We are the most connected generation in decades, but people are more lonely and divided than ever before. People crave connection. At Amity, we believe that the antidote is bringing people together within communities, so they can build authentic relationships, have meaningful conversations, and act on their passions. It is proven that communities make our lives better and building them is more important than ever.
With this podcast, we want to bring meaningful conversations around the power of communities, share the stories and wisdom of people successfully building them, and extract actionable advice to help anyone build their own. Join host Ivana Istochka, Amity’s VP of Community, to learn and get inspired from some incredible community leaders, creators, and tech experts. We hope you enjoy the show!
