Informed by feminist theory and methods, the authors adopt first person narrative and a conversational tone as a means by which to discuss sites of conversations in graduate student training. We discuss the creation of a Director's lunch program as a site of planned conversations and traditional workshop offerings as a site of unplanned conversations. We share our lessons learned from the conversations that took place in both locations and focus on how purposeful planning for conversations can shape graduate student programming and help build a teaching and learning community.
