Can We Talk? Intergenerational Dialogue with Penn Students and Alumni


Come together with fellow Penn students and alumni to talk about issues unique to this moment.

Add your voice to an intergenerational dialogue on the state of our nation. Come together with fellow Penn students and alumni.
  • Discuss key issues facing our divided nation.
  • Structured, with ground rules and experienced moderators.
  • Not a debate, a dialogue.
  • The more diversity of opinion around the “table” the better the experience.
What participants are saying:

Best political discussion I ever had.

I loved that it brought people from different backgrounds together to experience something incredibly meaningful.

I loved the ground rules. I am drawn to replicate this in spaces that I lead.

Sponsored by the Gamba Family Red and Blue Exchange, an initiative of the SNF Paideia Program at the University of Pennsylvania. Made possible by the Gamba Family and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Event designed and led by the PA Project for Civic Engagement. Co-hosted with Penn Alumni.
