What we're about

We are a group of curious minds that want to share and learn about how we can ethically apply behavioral science to work and life. We find interesting speakers from across town or the country to come in and give a TED-style presentation of 15-20 minutes and then dialogue around that with the larger group.

If you are at all interested in why people behave and think the way they do - and how that impacts us in our daily lives, our work lives, or our social lives - this is your group!

Every Third Thursday of the Month join us at 5:30 pm for socializing, learning and fun discussion. We welcome all levels of interest and experience and our speakers will talk about our biases, the heuristics we use in decision making and how nudges work in the real world.
