The best ideas start as conversations...

Celebrate the Power of Conversation…!


...9 Years…313 Table Hosts….313 Conversations…and more to come!!!

Since 2009, more than 2,500 dynamic, diverse, engaged & interested participants from different walks of life have gathered each spring to share a meal, share ideas and communicate in an effort to effect positive changes in our region.

Program to Aid Citizen Enterprise (PACE) had a unique idea to “set the table” and provide a forum for meaningful conversations, with the goal to foster connections that would put us on the path toward a more inclusive and understanding Pittsburgh. Now, more than ever, the need for these conversations remain critical and PACE is pleased to once again “set the table” for these important, thought-provoking conversations that are so important to our region.

Communication leads to community, understanding and mutual value.
