WTS members, please join us for a happy hour for a chance to hear from Holly Bartelt, Senior Program and Accounts Manager at Bridges to Prosperity (B2P); a Denver-based nonprofit organization that partners with local governments to connect communities via pedestrian bridges. Since its founding, B2P has connected over one million people, has built over 290 footbridges, and expanded to 18 countries across Southeast Asia, Africa, and Central and South America.

Holly started with B2P as a Staff Engineer, producing individualized bridge designs for unique and challenging sites, and standardized designs that were widely implemented. She transitioned to the Programs Manager role in 2016, leading the development of structures and support for their growing global team. Throughout her work, Holly strives to continually provide B2P with collaborative and innovative ideas.

Holly will be sharing stories and photos from the most recent B2P build: an all-women build of a footbridge in Uganda. She will also talk more about B2P, their mission, and have time for questions following the presentation.
