A New Style of Networking: The Ampersand Dinner. Each of us has a hobby, a family, and a story to tell. Our jobs don't define us. The Ampersand Dinners were created to allow folks to participate in meaningful conversation over a shared meal without revealing their profession. It is not until the end of the meal that you get to reveal what your job is. We want to connect people through conversation and food, because the table is where the best networking takes place. Please be willing to participate in vulnerable conversation and come without judgement. It’s hard to let down barriers, but this is a safe space to do so. **A portion of the night's proceeds will be donated to those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas**
