Dr. Bhat is also available to serve as a consultant and gender subject matter expert to documentary and film-makers who are working towards increasing representations and narrative change.
Explore a 2 hours oral or digital storytelling training for an overview of the process and impact OR develop a 3-day training for a fully immersive oral and digital storytelling experience. If you would like to host a webinar or in-person creative activity. Dr. Bhat incorporates art, tech, and oral forms of storytelling as well. Connect with Dr Bhat for more information.
Prevention Education & Culture Change
By drawing on her research of the power of images, true personal stories and representations of gender and gender violence (and related social issues), Dr. Bhat strives to engage communities for addressing and implementing prevention programs. Clients engage her as a consultant in the strategic planning of prevention work to bring about narrative and culture change, and in preparing and writing grant proposals using storytelling and evidence-based research.
Career Coaching and Mentoring
Due to popular demand and increased requests, Dr. Bhat is going to offer career and consultancy coaching and mentoring sessions to learn more about how she pursued her unique career blending academia and community education.
As much as she loves sharing her journey and is passionate about offering her time and valuable insights to peers and connections, this process is tedious and laborious, especially as a first-generation immigrant woman. Dr. Bhat, like other immigrant women of color, has experienced additional hurdles and had to take 3x times more effort to accomplish her career path. Providing mentoring and coaching sessions as a paid service would be a beautiful way to let her know you appreciate her labor and journey.
In the spirit of goodwill, Dr. Bhat will offer the first 30-minutes of coaching *free* of charge followed by sliding scale fees for the sessions after. Please inquire via email!
