In 2018 Kalinda Fisher sent out a social media invitation to join in conversation at her dining room table resulted in an outpouring of people interested in “talking.” After they gathered, it turned out they wanted more conversations about tough topics (opioids, suicide, health care, racial inequality, etc.), hence The Great Reset was born.

When the pandemic began in 2020, she realized there was an opportunity to take this one step further and offer online conversation to extend the reach nationally and internationally, locally and beyond. Now, The Great Reset is national, and international. The monthly conversations are held to keep the dialogue open to learn, grow and connect.

Realizing the people all over want to be heard, want to be respected, and want to have their say about what they believe in a safe, humble environment, Kalinda has created The Great Reset as a not-for-profit making conversation to anyone wanting to become involved, either as hosts or participants.

Kalinda, who has a master’s degree in Sociology and owns Advocate Market Research Bureau, made it her goal to have civil conversations with people at a time when only surface speak was conducted in what was becoming a volatile, politically charged period in our history.

Kalinda noticed some people could not converse for any length of time without a change in tone, as people felt challenged or threatened if they spoke their views.

“By offering monthly conversations virtually we meet people in their lives who want to learn and grow. I am so excited about our monthly calendar in 2023. We especially focus on learning during the summer when we can bring the conversation to a younger audience,” says Kalinda.

Topics for the next three months include: Gender Expectations and Reality, Guns in America, and Conservation & Climate Change. A full schedule of virtual events can be found on the website.

The most exciting part of The Great Reset for Kalinda is the partnership and opportunity to work with organizations, companies, non-profits, schools and really anybody who want to open the door to connecting and sometimes having those difficult conversations.
