Awkward Dinner

Awkward Dinners are facilitated group discussions held during dinner. They provide a unique platform for individuals from diverse backgrounds to come together, explore uncomfortable topics, challenge social norms, and foster growth. Led by experienced facilitators, the sessions offer a unique opportunity to engage in deep, authentic dialogue while breaking bread together.

We believe sustainable change toward true inclusivity requires a personal dive into challenging issues. The facilitators are there to guide the conversations by introducing relevant concepts and posing thought-provoking questions.

Since its introduction, Awkward Dinners has been well-received, and the Awkward Dinner program has been awarded for its innovative approach to uniting South Florida communities.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Ethnic and racial groups

Unity360 Community Dialogues provide a safe and inclusive space for community members to engage in open conversation about identities such as gender, sexual orientation, and race. This exercise promotes understanding, empathy, and unity. These workshops typically include a large group (50+ community members) and are facilitated by experts. The subjects in the sessions, at times, migrate to community issues that need to be addressed by the group. Due to the inclusive nature of the discussions, often consensus is reached, and an action plan is produced. In one recent case, an action plan from a community dialogue was presented to a local government that took corrective action.

The ACLU has awarded unity360 Community Dialogue for its impact on the local community.

Population(s) Served

The Redline Historical Bus Tours offer all Miami residents the opportunity to explore neighborhoods affected by historical discrimination such as redlining. The lingering effect of discriminating government policies still shapes the landscape of the redlined and surrounding neighborhoods. The rapid growth of communities in South Florida has also impacted these areas, and tour participants are often surprised by how these policies have impacted the entire Miami-Dade Area.

At the end of the tour, participants develop a deeper understanding of the city and why some neighborhoods are dominated by certain ethnic groups or particular kinds of houses.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 01/30/2024

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
