Founded in 2014, the Dinner Table Doc is a 501(c) (3) New York City, nonprofit organization that hosts media literacy workshops and self esteem building events for young women of color.
The Dinner Table Doc is a community organization that helps high school and college students live at their fullest potential by coming face to face with opportunity through media literacy workshops and self esteem building events. Our target audience is middle school and high school aged women of color ages 11-18 as well as incoming college freshmen.
Through our live dinner events and media literacy workshops we've been able to service over 500 girls in the Brooklyn, New York area. The Dinner Table brings young women of color face to face with opportunity by seating them with mentors in an intimate dinner setting. Through our partnerships we've been able to host panels and a summer camp centered around the perception of young women of color in media.
Our target audience is middle school and high school aged women of color ages 11-18 as well as incoming college freshmen. In 2016, The Dinner Table was recognized by the Obama Administration's White House Council of Women and Girls as a Nominated Change agent at the United State of Women Summit.
