What are the BIG CONVERSATIONS all about?


In 2023, we are all set to use the collective wisdom from our 2022 BIG CONVERSATIONS to design and implement practical and adaptive initiatives to address the values and priorities we have identified. And along the way, we’ll be experimenting a bit together to see what works best! Our planning conversations this year will be informed by how we have framed our shared identity and vision to answer the question: WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE?
