TableTalk was founded in 2013 by Ami Fields-Meyer and Adam Goldstein. During their first year in college, Ami and Adam noticed that they were spending most of their time with people who shared their race, religion, and family tax-bracket.
Most students tended toward an unspoken self-segregation. The classroom’s unrestrained exchange of ideas didn’t follow them onto the Quad, or into dining halls. So in the Fall of 2013, sitting on a tattered Ikea sofa in their fraternity house, they put their heads together and hatched an idea called TableTalk.
The TableTalk model began to impact people across Emory, and soon spread, first to the University of Pennsylvania, and then to Indiana University, and soon 30+ more campuses. The rest is history!
