october 2020 – march 2021

EVENT OVERVIEW

The world today is something we’ve never experienced before, and these uncharted waters are making us ask some big questions. How can we see the larger picture, find sources of hope and realize the power each of us has to chart a better course?

Uncharted spanned a series of thoughtfully curated evenings where attendees encountered critical new ideas and perspectives, were inspired to think differently, and engaged in meaningful dialogue with fellow curious souls.

Each of our events were designed to allow attendees to connect with others and take them on a journey—from understanding where we are, to discovering our shared connections, and charting a new course.
