The Dean's List brings together 10 diverse trailblazers to spark meaningful dialogue once a month over an intimate Dean's List Dinner. Our goal is to gather people from various religions, ages, political parties, races, industries, and cultural backgrounds to discover our common humanity.

Each dinner party is personally designed as an intimate gathering to spark meaningful conversation, new friendships, and knowledge sharing. Authentic, civil, and genuine dialogue where NO PHONES are allowed and opinions are encouraged. 

One expert guides the conversation that focuses on one topic - discovering our common humanity and opening up our minds to concepts we would have never been exposed to otherwise. 

10 Attendees. 1 Expert. 1 Host. 1 Topic.

*All in-person events were paused during COVID-19 pandemic

 "You were able to reach an audience who otherwise wouldn’t have known about what we are doing with the foundations. Everything went so well and the team was very appreciative of the extra love you showed us on social. Thank you so much for putting together such a fabulous video! My team and I kept checking the views and shares like “omg”!! The coverage looked great and we hope that we can work together more in the future."
