YOUR ROLE AS HOST
It’s easy. First, signup to host a dinner and we’ll send you the host guide to set up your dinner along with the Dinner Guide with questions. Then, select the date, time, location, number of guests, and post your dinner to allow guests to find it and RSVP. At the dinner, follow the dinner guide with questions, and enjoy your neighbors and friends!
As a host, your main role is setting a date, a time and location for strangers and friends to gather together over food to talk about the State of Women, and follow our simple Civic Dinners format:
Once you arrive at the dinner, you are a guest like everyone else. The Dinner Guide is designed to work without a moderator and has prompts and questions that guide the conversation, with one person speaking at a time. The “House Rules” should help keep people on the same page about how to have an engaging, insightful, and inclusive conversation.
After the dinner, your responsibilities as a host end, although you can choose to stay involved with your group. Civic Dinners will follow up with guests via email asking for feedback on the dinner conversation and providing a menu of actions which they can take. All dinner hosts and guests from the #StateofWomen conversation will be invited to join the #StateofWomen Civic Dinners Facebook group to continue the conversation and work on actions together.
After 100 days of dinners, we will share our report of a common vision for the future state of women and a new social contract that demands equality.
