What is Real Talk?
Real Talk is a weekly segment where allies come together to candidly discuss real global challenges to take action on real solutions.
Real Talk is inspired by "Junto Club" a group founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1727.
Here's some context:
In the fall of 1727, Benjamin Franklin and a group of friends founded the Junto Club also known as the Leather Apron Club. The 12 members were tradesmen and artisans who met Friday evenings to discuss issues of morals, politics, or natural philosophy. The Club lasted 38 years.
Every Wednesday at 3:55 PM EST, our allies join a zoom call to discuss a weekly topic.
Past topics include:
1. Health & Wellness
2. Entrepreneurship & Business
3. What are the qualities of a good leader we've never seen before?
We started Real Talk because there are no safe spaces today to discuss hot topics in the world.
Previously, coffee shops and libraries provided a space for people to share knowledge and perspectives.
Today, people are turning to Real Talk as their virtual space to stimulate important dialogue.
Our goal in creating Real Talk is to co-create a culture of trust, respect, and openness among allies to discuss and debate topics of interest.
Real Talk dialogue persists beyond the call.
Allies celebrate the opportunity to become inspired with new knowledge and perspectives.
Inspired allies take thoughtful action on ideas and solutions.
Together, we can make the world a better place for all. Do you want in?
