In addition to sharing a meal, guests will also share of their own experiences.  Each table of 8 will be carefully chosen to represent people from diverse backgrounds

A moderator will present the following questions to be answered by all participants.

  • In terms of diversity, how would you describe yourself?
  • Tell us about an important experience that you had that relates to your identity?
  • What is one thing you can do to connect with someone who is different from you?

If you are a part of an organization or group in our community who would like to participate at the Diversity Dinner, sign up for a booth! Informational Booths should represent culture, heritage, traditions, festivals, and celebrations in a positive light.



A few people having dinner can build positive relationships, establish cross-cultural communications and acknowledge our similarities. Since 2007, Salt Lake County’s Diversity Affairs Office has hosted a dinner to celebrate its community’s rich diversity.

The goal of the Diversity Dinner is to bring individuals of diverse backgrounds together to promote understanding, increase positive interactions within the community and build respect for one another as well as celebrate our similarities.

In addition to sharing a meal, guests share their own experiences throughout the night with other participants at their table. Moderator’s present questions to be answered and at the end of the meal a call-to-action is presented to those in attendance.

The dinner is offered at no cost to the general public, however, you must register to attend. Registration will begin on September 9th.  The Office of Diversity & Inclusion welcomes everyone to come and join us in this celebratory night of friendly and thoughtful dialogue.  For more information please call 385-468-7014.
