Building Together 2024 - Experiences


Don't miss these unique experiences taking place during Building Together.

Opening Reception

Monday, May 6 | 5:30-8:30 p.m.

We’re kicking off the event at an iconic Chicago location! Offshore Rooftop at Navy Pier will offer a beautiful setting and relaxed atmosphere for Practice Teams to get to know one another, plan their time together, and set shared goals for the days ahead.

The People’s Supper

Tuesday, May 7 | 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Join us for The People’s Supper where all are invited to gather as we build connection among peers of different identities and perspectives. Since 2017, this movement has brought more than 10,000 people together around dinner tables in over 100 cities and towns nationwide in partnership with dozens of local government and civic groups, faith-based organizations and communities, colleges and universities, and workplaces. Take advantage of the opportunity to break bread and connect with your colleagues to practice what you’re learning.

Seeking Volunteers!

We’re looking for 50 attendees to act as table facilitators. All facilitators will be invited to a pre-event training session to help prepare them for their role! Sign up when you register!

Wellness and Reflection

Throughout the Event

Inside of each day’s schedule, we’ve set aside opportunities for wellness activities and spaces for meditation, prayer, or quiet contemplation. Each attendee will also receive a journal with guided prompts to support their learning and reflection.

Chicago Excursions

Thursday, May 9 | 2:00-6:00 p.m.

The last day of Building Together will provide opportunities for you to experience Chicago and see the ways this unique city is building bridges and finding common ground. These add-on excursions will be curated by local Working Group members and will offer one-of-a-kind experiences. Watch for an email in early 2024 with more information on how to register.
