Good Talks (formerly Coffee & Conversation) events are an opportunity for members of our community to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of Goodwill’s work in the community and how collective investments and advocacy play a role in building pathways to prosperity for all.

Each 90-minute event will engage attendees in thought-provoking discussions grouped in some of Charlotte’s key diversity, equity and inclusion topics to bridge the gap between the community and those who engage with Goodwill through its programs and services.

We aim to connect those who want to explore new ideas, perspectives and potential solutions for individuals and families seeking opportunities for economic advancement. Good Talks is a safe and trusting space for all attendees to lean confidently into their lived experiences and cultural identities.


With the ultimate goal of connecting the community to Goodwill’s shared purpose and mission, the Good Talks series will explore the following topics: 

  • Friday, March 10: Women in Construction
  • Thursday, June 8: Allyship in the Workplace
  • Thursday, September 21: Health Equity
  • Thursday, December 7: Faith Community & Economic Justice
