Bridging is making meaningful connections with an individual or group that you believe to be different from you in some significant way for a common good. The common good or shared purpose can vary widely. It might be simply to expand our understanding of cultural diversity, or it could be to work on solving a common social problem or political dilemma. First and foremost, bridging is about understanding.
