Event description

Description

Join Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer, Judge Amy Corrigall Jones, and Judge Joy Malek Oldfield as they host a community coversation as part of On the Table. What can WE do together to create a stronger community? A boxed lunch will be provided. Seating is limited so RSVP today!

On the Table is a one-of-a-kind initiative, organized by Akron Community Foundation, where thousands of diverse residents from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds gather to share a meal and discuss meaningful ideas to strengthen our community. It’s an opportunity to shape our region into a strong, vibrant, safe and dynamic place to live and work.

We know that big ideas can spring from small conversations and that people invest in what they help create. While there is no “quick fix” to the many issues facing any community, progress can result from residents, organizations, businesses, foundations, and government agencies sharing ideas and working together. Our community-wide mealtime conversations will generate new ideas, inspire bold solutions, and provide opportunities for investment.

We genuinely want to hear every voice, not just the usual suspects. This initiative will give us the opportunity to engage and listen to our neighbors about the priorities and aspirations of our region. After October 3, participants will be invited to complete a short email or paper survey about the big ideas, themes and priorities that were discussed in their gatherings. From these responses, Akron Community Foundation will share a report highlighting the ideas, conversations and outcomes that emerge from On the Table Greater Akron. This data will inform the foundation’s proactive community investment.
