How To Launch Community Conversations That Create A Sense of Inclusion and Belonging

October 7, 2020

Engaging communities around tough topics that affect community health and growth can be difficult, especially in these socially-distanced times. Join Jenn Graham, founder and CEO of Civic Dinners, for a deep dive into successful community conversations in the cities of Sandy Springs and Decatur, Georgia and the City of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Civic Dinners is a community engagement platform designed to bring people together for conversations that matter. The platform makes it easy for local governments and civic leaders to start conversations and then pass the mic on to community members and stakeholders, who gather diverse voices from the community through self-organized conversations.

In this webinar, you will learn: 

  • How to bring more voices to the planning table on issues from economic mobility to belonging and community visioning
  • How data and insights gathered from conversations help shape long-range strategic plans and inspire a greater sense of belonging and inclusion among neighbors, business owners and civic leaders
  • How the new Inclusive Series by Civic Dinners can support your community with a variety of conversations that help communities build a greater sense of inclusion.

Since starting Civic Dinners as a social experiment in Atlanta, Graham has built a global team and a digital platform that has enabled over 1,800 dinners around the world — both in person and virtual — and has a goal of inviting one million people to the table by 2021. Her clients range from Facebook to Coca-Cola, including beloved organizations such as The King Center, Sierra Club and The Aspen Institute.

Graham was featured as a “2020 World-Changing Woman in Conscious Business” by Conscious Media Company, and last year she was recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as “Small Business Person of the Year – Rising Star.” Graham’s work has also been recognized by President Obama, and she has received numerous awards for social impact and creative community engagement.

This is a sponsored webinar. By registering for this webinar you are agreeing to have your contact information shared with Civic Dinners.
