As a business leader, are you actively encouraging your diverse workforce to be their natural whole selves in their collaboration with other employees and clients? Do you know what it takes to create this culture within your workplace? – or how it can lead to enabling new types of business growth?
Team building through enjoyable hands-on participatory activities like facilitated storytelling and spoken word workshops allow members of diverse groups to share stories about the cultural intersections that make up their unique identities. Our interactive approach veers away from lectures and towards creatively inclusive writing exercises. We awaken interest in evolving from monocultural perspectives to working environments that promote respectfully curious conversations about the diverse backgrounds we all hail from.
We support cultural sensitivity through workshops that provide enjoyable creative learning environments where participants:
Gain understanding of the crucial role that cultural intersections play in identity.
Express powerful experiences based on their own cultural backgrounds.
Learn how to identify and acknowledge cultural intersections in others.
Attain skills to support a workplace that embraces evocative conversations about cultural differences.
After a discovery call we create a customized program to meet the needs of our clients. By responding directly to your context, our workshops create a business world that has moved from monocultural practices to culturally diverse worldviews:
“Monocultural perspectives can be seen as ways of avoiding cultural difference by denying its existence, raising defenses against it, or minimizing its importance. Worldviews embracing diversity seek cultural difference by accepting its importance, adapting perspective to take it into account, and integrating the whole concept into conversations about identity”.
-Milton Bennett, Developmental Model of Cultural Sensitivity
