Event description

Description

Dinner Confidential is a 2-year research project that aims to explore how women feel and how they approach life’s challenges and joys through intimate monthly dinners.


Topics:

  • February: "Being Courageous" --> Courage is defined as the ability to do something that frightens us, and by having strength in the face of pain and fear. How do you approach obstacles and challenges? How do courage and confidence show up in your life?

  • "Our relationship with Sexuality" --> Sex and sexuality is one of the least talked about but most fundamental aspects of the human condition. It's taboo, it's uncomfortable, it's powerful, it's important - let's talk about it. Questions to explore: What does your desire look like? How has your relationship to your sexuality changed over time? What fills up you up, and what depletes you?

During our intimate dinners (7-10 max), our experienced hosts create a safe container for women to come together and talk with vulnerability and honesty about our most personal topics and emotions (e.g. self-confidence, fear, control).

After each dinner, we identify the key learnings and insights from the night and share them with our community so they, too can benefit from the experience. You can read our stories via Medium or our website.

We are currently hosting dinners in New York and Miami. London, Toronto and Austin are coming soon.


FAQs


Do attendees know each other?

  • Sometimes. But usually they don’t and that’s part of the magic. Coming into a place full of strangers to open up and share some of your most personal experiences is very powerful. No one there knows your history, you are a blank canvas. People won’t judge you or give you advice (unless you specifically ask for it). We are there to listen, share and connect.


Do I need to prepare for the Dinner?

  • A little bit! Your host will send all the details of the night via email, including a few questions for you to reflect upon prior the Dinner. All Dinners start with an intimate set of introductions, where each guest share her stories and is deeply heard.


How much are the dinners and what’s included?

  • Dinners are $15 and they include a healthy and yummy meal. We invite our guests to bring one thing to drink (wine, flavored water, etc.). Note that we are NOT making any profit from these evening and the fee only covers the cost.


Do the meals follow certain dietary guidelines?

  • Our hosts will always ensure there are vegetarian options available. If you have specific dietary restrictions, be sure to communicate with your host at least 1.5 weeks in advance.


How do you keep confidentiality?

  • We include a vow of confidentiality in our invitation, and reiterate the importance of confidentiality at the start of each dinner. We create a strong container of trust and integrity, and expect the same of all of our participants.


What makes DC different from a women’s circles?

  • Our secret is our hosts and the stories we tell! Our dinners are led by professional moderators, researchers and facilitators all around the world. Brilliant women with years of experience conducting challenging conversations amongst diverse groups of people. We’re less about the woo-woo, and more about the raw, real and impactful conversations with tangible insights for our guests and community to take action and implement within their daily lives.


What do you mean when you say “women”?

  • Anyone that is female identifying. Inclusivity is one of our core values! We welcome women of all ages, colors, religions and backgrounds. If you are male identifying and would love to attend a dinner, let’s talk.


What’s your cancelation policy?

  • We put a lot of love and effort into these dinners so please do your best to avoid a last minute cancellation. If you need to cancel, try to find a replacement. All cancellations made less than one week in advance can’t be refunded.
