Part-Time Event-Focused Community Lead (Philadelphia)
Skip The Small Talk hosts structured social events based in psychology research to help people get closer, faster. We use techniques grounded in psychological research to offer people the tools they need to interact more genuinely and feel more connected to each other in their daily lives. We’ve read the white papers, sorted through the abstracts, and connected the dots to create social interaction activities that actually work.
And guess what? We promise it won’t be awkward. Join us and see what we mean!

Community & Trust. We owe them everything, and we strive to honor them as often as possible. When anyone tells us we should be doing something differently, we want to prioritize changing it as long as it is aligned with our values, and within our power to do so. Through transparency, openness and clarity around our “why” at every level of our community, we earn trust.
Courage & Compassion. We do the right thing, even when it’s the hard (or even less profitable) thing. We do the work it takes to stay compassionate in a field rife with burnout, and we support all who work with us in doing the same, even if it’s inconvenient, costly, or difficult. We know the magic of service provided wholeheartedly, and we do the extra work to make sure we and those who work with us can stay compassionate over the long run.
Respect & Boundaries. All humans have inherent worth; value which deserves to be treated with dignity and kindness, no matter what. We respect boundaries as a precursor to comfort and vulnerability, and expect our guests, facilitators, and all who are involved with our events to do the same.
Social Justice & Accessibility. We live in a world that systematically oppresses BIPOC, people with disabilities, people with lower socioeconomic opportunities, women and gender minorities, LGBTQIA folks, and folks of many other identities. With whatever power we have available to us, we want to prioritize the needs of systematically oppressed folks to do our small part to help right the injustices inherent to living in the world today.
