Big Talk - Virtual Event
August 30, 5 p.m.
Big Talk was created by Kalina Silverman to challenge strangers to skip the small talk (ie, talking about the weather) and jump into deeper topics (ie, life goals). Big Talk allows strangers to get to know each other on a deeper level and better appreciate diverse perspectives. It helps participants develop multicultural competence by thinking about how culture and past experiences can shape the answers of others. At the August 30th Big Talk event, we’ll randomly match participants and provide guiding questions to incite meaningful conversation. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are all encouraged to take part! RSVP: email@example.com
