How we gave back at Talent Connect 2019

Take the Plus One Pledge

Everyone should have the network they need to help them achieve their career goals. In 2019, we invited attendees to join the Plus One Pledge, committing to share their time, talent, or connections with people outside their regular network.

Supporting the Dallas community

We teamed up with The Stewpot, a safe haven for homeless and at-risk communities in Dallas. The Dallas Street Choir performance, from the Stewpot, performance kicked off Talent Connect 2020, and attendees assembled 2,000 hygiene kits within the first day.

Through the Give + Get area, a collective total of over $23,800 was donated to local organizations including The Stewpot, YearUp, and The Greater Houston Community Foundation.

Sustainability at Talent Connect

To limit our ecological footprint, we strive to use recyclable materials from sustainable resources to build the event’s infrastructure, and donate items (such as plants, furniture, and food) to local charities, schools, and parks. We also measure the performance and usage results for sustainability on our events to set improvement goals for future events.
