Event description

Description

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

Our SPRING/SUMMER Topics:

  • Thursday May 16th "Ambition" --> Sometimes ambitious women get a bad rep. They can be seen as too strong, too greedy, or too aggressive. Yet, we all have dreams and desires of wanting to achieve something (maybe even very big things). Let's have a conversation about how ambition shows up in our lives, what drives us to be determined and pursue what we want and what holds us back.

  • Thursday June 20th "Self Love" --> We can love our parents, our friends and our partners - but what does it mean to love ourselves? Self-love feels easier said than done. How do we love ourselves when we feel lost and unsure, when we're critical of our flaws, or when we compare ourselves to others? Let's talk about our self-love journey thus far, the challenges of loving ourselves fully - even the parts we don't necessarily like.

  • Thursday July 25th "Anger" --> We all know the feeling. Whether political or personal, something happens that sparks a flame inside of you, you feel your blood begin to boil. It's heated, it's powerful, and it can feel all consuming. Many of us are seasoned in repressing our anger, we pretend it does not exist. Perhaps some of us live in a state of perpetual anger - it is the lens through which we view the world. Whatever it may be, our anger is real and it is valid. But how many of us feel we have a healthy relationship with this emotion? Let's have a conversation about anger - how it feels and how it shows up in our lives.

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 NYC, Miami, Toronto, San Juan, Mumbai, LA, Sao Paulo, Bogota, Seattle, Manchester and more. New cities coming soon. Please get in touch if you'd like to attend a dinner in one of these cities.


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 cancellation 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.
