About Our Facilitators

Cornell Interaction Theater Ensemble was formed in January 1992 as a unique resource for employee education and training at all levels. Interactive theatre combines live theatre and audience participation to create a resource for dialogue from multiple points of view on a wide variety of workplace issues. CITE presentations have been designed and implemented for academic institutions, corporations, professional groups, conferences, and government agencies. Participants leave CITE presentations with a deeper understanding of the dynamics of problematic situations in the workplace, with a visceral impression of the impact such problems can have on members in a workplace community, and with strategies for managing and preventing such problems.
