Host Portal

Living Room Conversations don’t require any special skills or certifications to host yourself. However, we have a number of resources to support you in hosting and organizing your own conversations. 

Host Toolkit

Walk through this step-by-step process on hosting a conversation in your community, online or by video, or within your organization.

(Select one below)


How to Host Your Own Living Room Conversation

Recommended for those looking to implement regular conversations in their communities or understand better what is involved in hosting. This training goes over the nuts and bolts of hosting and you’ll walk away with a game plan for your first conversation.

Held on the second Tuesday of the month at 9am PST/12pm EST – sign up here

How to Host a Conversation About Race

Recommended for those wanting to start conversations about race. Rather than go over “how to host” in general, the focus for this training involves our framework for approaching conversations about race. We will explore what gets in your way from having these conversations and how to stay engaged regardless.

Custom Host & Organizer Trainings

Recommended for those looking to build understanding within a specific organization, community, or corporation. This training includes a co-branded PDF packet with resources not available in our standard Host Toolkit. It also includes program design, support for implementation, and a hosted conversation on the topic of your choice. We can pull from content from the other training offerings, offer a combination of both, or focus on building conversation skills in general.

Each custom training is unique—please schedule a consultation for more information.
