Building a better world should be engaging, not boring


& Trainings

Trainings should be engaging - something your team actually looks forward to. That’s why all Better World Collaborative workshops and trainings are infused with humor, personality, interactivity, and concrete takeaways. We offer Diversity, Equity and Inclusion workshops on a range of topics including: LGBTQI+ experience and inclusion, transgender experience and inclusion, racial equity, unconscious bias, and more. 

The creative arts can transform our world. Join Better World Collaborative in making our creative spaces more just and equitable. As two creatives, BWC founders Rebecca Kling and Crispin Torres have extensive backgrounds in independent music, theatre, and the creative arts.


That gives our team the necessary real-world expertise to find equity solutions for your theatre, venue, studio, or creative organization, so you can better bring your vision to life.

For the Creative Industry

Nonprofits know that there is never enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done.

Our nonprofit-focused workshops and trainings cut to the chase, linking the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion to your mission and the communities you serve.

For Non-Profits

Your business can only thrive when everyone on the team feels accepted and supported. Our corporate workshops connect the dots between your bottom line and diversity, equity, and inclusion.


We discuss real-world scenarios, skip bland memorization, and focus on how you can take concrete actions in support of equality.

For Businesses

It Starts With You

Unique organizations require unique solutions. That's why we tailor our projects to suit your specific needs. Whether you want to mix and matching existing services or build something totally new - we can help. Just get in touch and let's start brainstorming.

Speaking & Storytelling

From preparing your team for a media appearance to presenting as a keynote speaker at your next event or conference, Better World Collaborative wants to help you tell your story. Our team’s creative background, media experience, and lobbying know-how will ensure your message lands with the impact it deserves.

Media outlets can be a key component of getting your message out into the world. Whether your team needs talking points or to practice interview questions, and whether you'd like a one-time training or a media campaign with press outreach and specific deliverables, Better World Collaborative is your partner in getting your story heard by the right people to make the biggest splash.

Media Appearances

Building a better world often means working with elected officials or testifying at public hearings. Whether you need assistance with one-on-one prep calls, multi-session workshops, designing (and running) lobbying events, or supporting your existing lobby days - our team has what it takes to get the job done.


We'll work with your staff, volunteers, community leaders, and community spokespeople on how to best share their stories to make a lasting impact in our civic spaces.

Lobbying Public Officials 

Does your event or conference need a keynote speaker who can entertain your audience while also shining a light on the important issues impacting your organization?


Better World Collaborative's team of artists and educators ensures that our speakers are always engaging and never boring.

Keynote Speaking 



Your organization’s needs don’t always fit into a simple box. That’s why we offer flexible consulting services, from a one-time phone-call  to brainstorm a specific issue or concern, to long-term partnerships for leadership and organizational development as well as equity audits or media analysis.

There is no one-size-fits-all path to equality. If you're looking for something not listed on this page--or aren't quite sure what you're looking for--contact us for a free consultation to brainstorm and learn more about our work.

Phone Consultation

Strong leadership can make the difference between an organization that thrives and one that falls short.


We offer personalized, individual leadership coaching to build the skills you need to take your organization to the next level.

Leadership Development

Activists and organizers at heart, Better World Collaborative believes that meaningful and long-lasting strategic vision can only come from the communities we serve.


The Better World Collaborative team draws upon decades of experience leading and operating national organizing committees, 501(c)(3) organizations, and less formally structured groups and projects, all of which inform our mission-driven and equity-focused process. We can help you reimagine your traditional management structure, operations plans, or help you strategize new solutions to better serve your communities.
