Virtual collaboration has been a standard for many teams and organizations across the world. The regrettable outbreak of COVID-19 renders virtual workshops and other forms of learning and development activities, where participants do not meet face to face, even more relevant.


The pandemic poses new challenges for a great number of our clients. We know the situation will pass and that our tool will continue to be used in F2F workshops.


Now, however, we are more than ever dedicated to showcasing its effects – increased trust, cohesion, closeness and open communication – in the virtual context.


The Diversity Icebreaker online questionnaire is both robust and versatile and, in this webinar, we will demonstrate multiple ways of using it in the virtual context.




- facilitation of a DI-workshop using video-conferencing software, e.g. Teams, Slack, Zoom, Skype, etc.

- facilitation in  AULA® (including a live-demo for interested*); a software with a dedicated DI-module

- trust in virtual collaboration: a DI online add-on feature

- tips essential for successful virtual facilitation

- asynchronous learning with the Diversity Icebreaker: resources, platforms, and asynchronous group-discussion formats relevant for Red, Blue and Green

- Red, Blue and Green e-preferences and behaviors




This webinar is for the Diversity Icebreakers – facilitators, consultants and leaders – who wish to use the tool with their dispersed teams and/or for other reasons cannot apply the tool in a F2F context.

It will also be relevant for consultants already working virtually, but who want to learn how to use the Diversity Icebreaker in this context.




Please register for this webinar at: seminar@human-factors.no and *state which date and if you are interested in a live-demo of AULA®.




29th of September at 3 PM CET or 28th at 6 PM CET.
