Event Theme


What does it mean to belong? How do you feel when you think about your family, your community, your organization? For many, belonging provides the foundation of all comfort, a sense of conviction that others have your back, that all will be well. Yet sometimes belonging can be less tangible and more illusory or fleeting; it can disappear without warning.
In this salon, we explore what belonging is really all about, sharing personal meditations on family, life, love and loss. This evening’s extraordinary speakers will not only share where they find hope for a more welcoming world, they’ll also shine a light on the breakthroughs and ideas that
might get us there.
