This civic engagement project aims to create opportunities to connect eight individuals by inviting them to attend an event with food, conversation and networking in an intimate personal setting. Sharing experiences and professional networks will broaden individual community engagement using a small group format. There are four main goals of Power of Eight. Participants will have an opportunity to: (1) Connect with others in an informal intimate setting; (2) Establish connections outside current professional or personal affinity groups; (3) Become more confident about networking ; (4) Create larger networks by hosting their own Power of Eight event.
