Awkward Dinner

Our curated and facilitated dinner experiences offer a unique opportunity to foster deep, authentic dialogue while breaking bread together over a delicious meal and refreshing drinks.

We believe that sustainable change towards true inclusivity requires a personal dive into the issues at hand. Our professional facilitators are skilled in guiding discussions and creating an environment where participants can feel comfortable exploring uncomfortable topics. By introducing relevant concepts and thought-provoking questions, we encourage critical thinking and introspection.

During these dinners, participants will have the chance to explore how the lack of diversity and inequity impacts their own lives, the lives of others, as well as their organizational and community environments. We encourage individuals to challenge their perspectives, deepen their understanding, and forge personal connections that heighten awareness, empathy, and compassion.

Our approach goes beyond theoretical discussions by incorporating experiential activities and storytelling. Through these interactive elements, participants can engage with the subject matter on a personal level, allowing for a more profound and transformative experience. By creating an environment that encourages vulnerability and open dialogue, we aim to foster a safe space for growth and learning.

Awkward Dinners by SFPoC is an excellent opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to embark on a journey of self-reflection, education, and social change. Join us as we navigate the complexities of inclusion, diversity, equity, accountability and sustainability (IDEAS) one dinner at a time.
