Event description

Description

Dinner Confidential's mission is to help build a world where women feel more free, loving, connected and courageous.


We are excited to announce our first ever co-ed Dinner Confidential, as we bring 10 men and women together around the table to discuss the topic of power. With gender dynamics playing such a pivotal role in how power is understood, shared and expressed, we couldn't imagine a better topic to welcome men into our community for honest, respectful and vulnerable dialogue.


Thursday, July 25th --> POWER - Governing moments both ordinary and extraordinary - from the office, to the bedroom, to our friendships - our relationship with power often emerges from its imbalance. Sometimes we feel strong, influential, and "better" than others. And on the flipside, there are times when we can feel inferior, worthless or unsafe. Let's explore our relationship with our “power” — what happens when we abuse it OR it’s taken away (either by ourselves or others)?

But what about our true, authentic power - the one where we don't feel inferior or superior to anyone - but rather, simply true to ourselves. What does it take - and how does it feel - to really stand there?

Join Dinner Confidential co-founder and NYC host Sybil Ottenstein alongside Nathan Shultz, founder of Elevate with Purpose Inc. and Evryman representative, for this evocative and important event.

About Dinner Confidential

We explore the full spectrum of the feminine experience through storytelling and community. Each month we investigate a different social topic globally (i.e.: Failure, Sexuality, Courage etc) through intimate dinners and then share the learnings with our community. You can read our stories via Medium or our website.

We are currently hosting dinners in over 20 cities around the world.

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 or men'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” or "men"?

  • Anyone that is female or male identifying. Inclusivity is one of our core values! We welcome women and men of all ages, colors, religions and backgrounds.


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.
