The TableTalk℠ concept was created in 2013 by Ami Fields-Meyer and Adam Goldstein and soon after, TableTalk℠ was evolved by Sophie Beren. During their first years in college, Ami, Adam, and Sophie noticed that they were spending most of their time with people who shared their race, religion, and family tax-bracket.
Most students tended toward an unspoken self-segregation. The classroom’s unrestrained exchange of ideas didn’t follow them onto the Quad, or into dining halls. So in the Fall of 2013, Ami and Adam hatched TableTalk℠ Emory. The TableTalk℠ model soon spread, first to the University of Pennsylvania where Sophie then transformed the organization into a Global movement now adopted by 60+ schools.
TableTalk℠ continues to grow and is now expanding to high schools as well as universities. We hope to continue creating meaningful connection and conversation on campuses worldwide!
