NETWORKING RECEPTION

Our Galas have served as an opportunity for friends, professionals, colleagues, and community members to congregate, fellowship, and network. However, with vast swaths of the city under social distancing restrictions, networking may be the furthest thing from your mind. But just because you cannot connect in person does not mean your professional relationships have to languish. Therefore, for 2021, we have pivoted to organizing a virtual networking event instead.

Often, we work within the silos of our respective fields and forget there is an entire city filled with like-minded people working to achieve the same goal, a better Dallas for everyone. Our networking Gala Reception will allow people, groups, and/or organizations that align in the non-profit sector to meet, chat, and exchange information. Hopefully, this will lead to new and exciting partnerships!

Here are a few questions we are all considering in the age of COVID-19:

  • What is an interesting way you are using your time now?
  • Tell us about a time during the pandemic you have been resilient.
  • How have you adapted to working and living while social distancing?
  • What are you enjoying most about your job right now, and why?
  • What is something unexpected you have learned or done in the past year?
