Interested in learning the model of Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI”)?

Learn the five foundational roots and 21 touchpoints that make up IZI.  Get the skills to host your own IZI at home,  your place of worship or your workplace! Gain access to proprietary Marnita’s Table tools.


Option 1

Marnita’s Table hosts one to two trainings per quarter at our headquarters in Minneapolis. Dates and times can be found on our calendar.  The value of our IZI 101-105 course is $1,500 per person, but because we are mission-driven we have created a sliding scale so that anyone who needs may access it. There are possible scholarship options for individuals and organizations who have an annual income below $1M.  We do ask that those receiving a scholarship donate $30.00 to cover the cost of food and beverage. Those looking to receive a scholarship are required to send a paragraph to lauren@marnitastable.org about how IZI training will impact their work or personal lives.

Option 2

Get a group together of 10 or more who want to learn IZI.  We build custom training in your community for both organizations and community collaborations. Contact us to learn more.

Additional Options

Become a Master Trainer! Learn IZI delivery and training to support an organization or community adopting the IZI model.

Marnita's Table is a 501(c)3. Our fifteen-year old organization seeks to close gaps across difference through making Intentional Social Interaction the new pattern for society where people of color, the disenfranchised, the poor, the unheard, the fragile, the LGBTQ+ and anyone who is normally left out of community decision making are automatically included and valued at the policy-making and resource-sharing table.
