The Kitchen Table

Bringing together leaders and students, one discussion at a time.

The Baker Center’s The Kitchen Table series provides Georgetown students access to leaders from across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors and offers an opportunity to engage in conversation over a shared meal.

Conversations are facilitated by a subject-matter expert or practitioner and followed by open dialogue with students. The goal of this program is to highlight individuals who have exemplified core aspects of 21st century leadership, expose students to topics related to various fields and sectors (particularly issues that are cross-sector), and engage students in conversations around what future leadership in that field should look like.

Our hope is that these meals serve as just the starting point of a conversation, as we eagerly look for ways to keep the group engaged through ongoing dialogue or thought partnership beyond the just the one event.
