Friday, July 8, 10:00 – 11:30am (CT) – Virtual Session – Storytelling for Community Belonging

Julie Uribe

Join Emmy Award-winning producer Julie Uribe for an exciting interactivehands-on workshop to build skills that will help you deepen relationships and expand creativity in your community-based work. As the creative force behind belonging in our Nebraska communities, you and your team can benefit from these practical tools. Julie brings decades of experience performing and teaching improvisation, listening, and storytelling to leaders and teams across sectors.

Julie Uribe has more than 25+ years of experience in Hollywood. Her journey started as an actor, to writer/producer, then television executive where she traveled around the world developing TV formats. Julie also studied at the famous Groundlings Improv School—the same training ground as Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy. She recently launched the We Are Nebraska Internship with the belief that better communication, inclusivity, and empathy can be taught with applied improv training. From Bioscience majors to Accountants to Actuarial Scientists, Julie teaches Applied Improv at the University of Nebraska, outside of the performance space. Her improv work has also been applied to the law enforcement community and local citizens with proven and tangible success.
