Around our Table, is an interactive multi-perspective discussion platform.
We are on a mission to revolutionize the way we approach problem-solving.
We facilitate multi-perspective discussions that promote critical thinking and engagement.
We believe in the power of ideas and the importance of making knowledge accessible to all learners, from diverse community members to students. Around Our Table was born in an attempt to understand best practices and methods for inspiring innovative, critical and imaginative thinking to solve complex social issues.
We've taken the traditional, single-narrative, one-to-many (speakers, lecturers), methods of sharing information and simply expanded them. Our unique many-to-many approach is a multi-perspective format that allows for the dissemination of ideas and information
Around our table uses a unique, moderated discussion format that consists of thought-provoking prompts (never questions)
This format allows each participant to:
build off a current argument
Add diverse insight
Add relevant but potentially overlooked information
Approach each statement from multiple perspectives
To date, we have hosted several community-based sessions, focused on social topics such as Community Building, Activism, non-profits, and their social impact, social media as it relates to mental health and more. The selection process is very intentional as we seek to invite participants from diverse backgrounds to engage in a semi-directed (loosely facilitated) discussion.
Our objective is to spark ideas and focus on impact in hopes that our participants and our larger audience come away with an enriched, multi-faceted understanding of the topic.
