Cafe Conversations 2017

Cafe Conversations 2017


Registration is now closed. If you would like to attend any of the sessions listed below that is not full, please email

It’s that time of year for a YNPN-TC member-favorite event! Join like-minded peers for small conversation circles at this year’s Cafe Conversations (Saturday, August 19, 10:00-12:00).

There is a talk for everyone! The conversations will range from serious topics like racial equity and political advocacy to personal discussions about parenthood and the question "Am I still a young professional if I'm in my 30s?"

Choose Your Own Adventure

The full list of sessions is below, and each has its own page where you can read a description of the session, learn about the facilitator, and register to participate (do not register on this page). Each conversation will only have 10-15 participants, so make sure to register before your favorite session is full!
