Spaghetti Project

The Spaghetti Project is a platform devoted to sharing the science and impact of human connections with global brands, community groups, teams and individuals. Inspired by a 2015 Cornell study showing that firemen who eat together are better at their jobs (they save more lives!), founder and longtime workplace strategist Erica Keswin has made it her business to help people honor relationships. And as a hats-off to the firemen and their go-to firehouse meal, she calls her work the Spaghetti Project. Offerings include live events, workshops, retreats, partnerships, podcasts, research, publishing, and keynotes. And of course, spaghetti and meatballs are served.
