Community Building

At the Winter Institute, we believe the first step to racial reconciliation and equity is to start the conversation. Through one of our signature programs, The Welcome TableĀ®, we help start that process by creating an intentional space for diverse groups of people to build community and trust in order to dialogue openly and honestly about race. Through the power of storytelling, community members learn from each other, deepening their understanding of their unique and shared experiences. This process of relationship building and knowledge growth results in real and measurable change.

We have facilitated the Welcome Table process for communities in every region of the state and beyond, with major institutions of culture, school district leaders and educators, and state Legislatures.
