Conversation Café


What is a Conversation Café? Conversation Café is a lively, hosted, drop-in conversation among people about feelings, thoughts, and actions in an ever changing world. Cafés are unique because their intent is to foster inquiry rather than debate- involving minds and hearts. Every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. in Conference Room A, a specific topic is discussed in a structured manner, allowing all participants to have the freedom to say what is on their minds.
Bob Gast  will be the host of the café.
