About this Event

Due to the outbreak of the corona virus, we are moving our event online. We have planned for interesting ways to use Zoom so you can still expect a mix of small group conversations and whole-group learning together, following the agenda described below. So make yourself some lunch and join us for good conversation!

Here is the link to connect:

We will be available in Zoom ten minutes before the official start of the event.

The Lunch and Listen series, convened by the Pitt u.lab hub and Fit Associates, is a pilot to understand the lives and needs of social change makers in the Pittsburgh region and co-create strategies together. We will host three listening events between March and May 2020, and start prototyping programs in September of 2020.

We aspire to create useful, impactful space for the development of change leaders in the Pittsburgh region. As a way to begin well, we have two goals for this series: to listen well, and to begin weaving a web of relationships that will live on into the prototyping phase in September.

So our lunch will be a “Conversation Café.” Through the hour you can expect lightly-facilitated open conversations about valuable questions, ending with a harvest of key insights from the room.

The session is open to everyone who is engaged in social change efforts in Pittsburgh.
