DIVERSITY ICEBREAKER: INTRODUCTION WEBINAR

Learn how to facilitate a DI workshop virtually and/or F2F during this practical train-the-trainer webinar

 

Target

This webinar is for facilitators, consultants, trainers, managers, and HR professionals; both those entirely new to the tool and more experienced user (e.g. who wish to learn how to use the tool virtually or need to refresh their knowledge).

 

 

Webinar facilitator

 

 

Piotr Pluta  MSc in Psychology, is the Managing Director responsible for consultancy in Human Factors. Piotr has facilitated a number of virtual and F2F Diversity Icebreaker workshops and was involved in development of a dedicated DI-module for a 3D collaboration platform. Piotr has also supported our clients with tips and help both prior and during application of DI. Piotr is also involved in many of our R&D projects and delivers consultancy in the areas of communication, trust building, cross-cultural work and diversity management. 

 

 

CONTENT – 3 PARTS

Social distancing due to COVID-19 and limitations for F2F-workshops it presents continue. Many of our clients turn thus to facilitating DI-workshops online with Zoom, MS Teams, etc.

The webinar will consist of 3 parts (a total of 1 hour and 50 minutes). If you are entirely new to the concept, we suggest that you participate in all three. If you know that you do not want to use the tool in an F2F context, you can leave after part 2. If you have previous experience in using DI and are interested exclusively in the virtual application, you can choose to participate only in part 2, e.g.

 

Part 1 (30 min) Fundamental introduction

  • DI's background (history, research, theory)
  • standard workshop structure (4 stages)
  • application areas and desired outcomes


Part 2 (60 min) Facilitation of a virtual DI workshop

 

  • using video conferencing software: MS Teams and Zoom covered in detail
  • working in breakout rooms*
  • demonstration of an alternative software with avatars (AULA® 3D)
  • addressing trust in virtual collaboration with DI (an optional add-on feature)
  • tips for a successful virtual facilitation

*depending on the number of participants attending the webinar: practical experience (with tasks and group work) or demonstration

 

Part 3 (20 min) F2F

  • standard DI structure in F2F context
  • small and large groups
  • tips for a successful F2F facilitation
  • COVID-19 precautions
