continue the conversation

Join us to continue the conversation that began during the inaugural On the Table on October 24, 2018!

Poverty, economic development, and race relations stood out as a few of the top areas of opportunity On the Table survey respondents identified they wanted our community to address. This three-part Table Talk series will dive deeper into these areas through informative panels and small group conversations.

Each event is free and limited to 35 people. A recording of the panels will be posted on this page following the event. Registration for each event will open one month in advance.

All events will be located at Central Carolina Community Foundation’s office (2142 Boyce Street, Suite 402, Columbia, SC 29201)
