Self, Family & Friends, Neighborhood and Institutions.

Through evenings fueled by food, drinks and conversation, participants will leave with new insights, actionable resources and concrete tools to help you catalyze changemaking within your own circles of influence.

Heavy appetizers and two drink tickets per person are included with registration.

One session: $10.00

Bundle price for all 4 sessions: $30.00 (Bonus: You will be entered to win a copy of Ashoka's new book Rippling!)
