Join us on Monday, October 21st, 2019 for our next Be Social Change Dinner on Networking for Introverts facilitated by Rachael Arthur of Convers(ate).

Are you interested in expanding your professional network, but the idea of going to a networking event sounds dreadful? Enjoy meeting new people, but don’t particularly like small talk? You will be in good company as introversion is something many of us have in common yet is not often discussed openly, especially around a table filled with people who could all learn from one another.

Come join us for good food, great company, and an opportunity to grow your network with new connections!

What Attendees Are Saying:

“I loved the idea of dinner because sharing food always seems to take some of the awkwardness out of networking. The facilitation was excellent and really opened us up to conversation while still giving us a format to follow. This made connecting with people much easier than I’d expected!” – Caroline Contillo

“It’s gratifying to find other introverts like me with similar experiences and I left feeling energized and focused. Every Be Social Change event I’ve attended, I’ve come away learning something new and being more comfortable and focused in myself & my abilities. I’ve also found a community that’s focused on the future of everyone, not just a select few.” – Amanda Baird

We strive to produce as minimal waste as possible during Be Social Change events – help us by bringing a reusable water bottle to the event.
