A Seat at the Table – 2018

Download our free conversation guide here! Built on the lessons learned from A Seat at the Table’s pilot year, this conversation guide will help you set the table for difficult conversations where ever you are.

About A Seat at the Table

An initiative of Treehouse Institute led by Chanel Lewis (pictured right), A Seat at the Table aims to engage the community in having difficult discussions and conversations around entangled and complex subjects — race + privilege; sex, gender and identity; and climate change — through weekly meet-ups that will culminate in a family-style dinner. With 2017 looking and feeling as exclusive and divisive as 2016, it is important we all pull up to the table—baggage and all—and continue to build and strengthen a more empathetic, compassionate, and understanding community.

Check out the A Seat at the Table Guide! We believe that it takes us all to build and strengthen a more empathetic, compassionate, and understanding community and invite you to host conversations in your home, office, favorite coffee shop or brewery. Feel free to use our conversation guides, which are available through creative commons licensing. This means they are free to you as long as you don’t try to make money off them, don’t change them for distribution, and give us a little nod. Our new guide to Radical Listening includes specific conversations including:

Race + Privilege Conversation Guide

Sex, Gender + Identity Conversation Guide

Climate Change Conversation Guide

White Supremacy Conversation Guide

As you use them, we’d really appreciate hearing how your conversations go. And if there are things you try that work well, in addition to what we’ve provided in these guides, we’d love to hear about that too.
