ONA Table Talks have been reconceived as digital-only meet-ups for ONA21, with a single, video-conferencing breakout room, managed by conference speakers and staff and open to all attendees. These spaces are a chance for attendees to share experiences, gain expertise and network across job roles and organization types.

Join this Table Talk for best practices and tools to help make change, workshop soliciting buy-in, and experiment with techniques for spreading change through an organization.
