Dinner Table Talks
We bring together a diverse group of people with unique perspectives to reflect on the challenges and opportunities of our communities and region.
We ask, “What is Forterra’s role?” and learn how we can help.
When we decided to re-evaluate or own work, to take a hard look at how we could continue to achieve our mission and make this a sustainable region, we knew the best kind of soul searching was to listen and learn from others. We launched a series of community dinner table conversations – 31 to date—that brought attendees to our office and took us out to where our communities live.
