OVERSUBSCRIBED Microaggressions: Livestream Showcase 8 Feb 2023

We’ve had a fabulous response to this event and there are no longer any places available. You can register if you want to hear the next time we are running this event.

It’s not nothing: a free livestream event about microaggressions, allyship, and becoming a challenger

A fantastic, interactive session that really made me think about certain situations and how I can turn them around.
Learner Feedback

On Wednesday 8 February 2023 we’ll be showcasing content from our Microaggressions virtual training and learning development workshop on Zoom.

Featuring dramatised scenes delivered by professional actors in a studio setting (we’re calling it ‘studiostream’), this is a great opportunity to experience our engaging, immersive learning programmes for yourself. Find out how we blend drama, theoretical models, and live interactive content to help organisations on their journey to becoming a truly inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued.

The programme

We’ll take you through how our customers have been using our dynamic blend of interactive simulations and group exercises with actors, video, and electronic voting to achieve the following learning outcomes in online and in-person sessions:

  • Understand what microaggressions are
  • Appreciate the negative impact of fragility and microaggressions
  • Reflect on personal experiences of microaggressions
  • Practising challenge and exploring barriers to becoming an active bystander
  • Introduction to allyship
  • Identify practical actions to create a more diverse, inclusive working environment

We’ll also cover:

  • Tools of the trade – introducing a selection of innovative and experiential, drama-based training tools and techniques; and
  • User feedback – sharing evaluation results, client and user perspectives on this alternative approach to training and learning development.

Please note, this isn’t a full training workshop. It’s an opportunity for Human Resources, Equality & Diversity, and Learning & Development professionals to try out elements of our programme, learn more about our work in this area, and consider whether it’s something they want to run in their organisation.

What learners say

“Microaggressions – how things that we might not always think about can actually be upsetting to others, and how little changes make a big difference.”
“Good, came away feeling confident I knew how to handle situations.”
“It was a great session that really brought the issue to life and gave some good pointers on how to redirect uncomfortable conversations.”
“Didn’t know what to expect at first but found the session interesting and it was thought provoking.”
“The acting out of the scenarios brought it to life.”
“It was great! Very interesting and dynamic and cool! Will stick in my mind!”

Inclusive Recruitment: Livestream Showcase 22 Feb 2023

New faces, new ideas: a free livestream event showcasing experiential training on inclusive recruitment

The benefits of a diverse workforce are widely known. Getting recruitment right doesn’t just give you access to a wide talent pool; it can be a game changer.

That’s why we developed a half-day livestream training programme with a dynamic blend of live-action and filmed drama, polling, group exercises, and powerful conversations to show people how to use inclusive practices throughout the recruitment process.

It’s a highly interactive, impactful experience that will improve your recruitment processes and inspire participants to make a positive difference.

On Wednesday 22 February 2023, we’ll be showcasing selected content on Zoom. There’s no charge, but places are limited. Don’t miss your chance to experience the impact of our experiential training approach for yourself. It’s definitely not what you’re used to.

The programme

Using realistic, dramatised content with experienced actors (participants don’t act), electronic polling, facilitated group exercises and discussions from our programme, we’ll demonstrate how our learners explore the key elements of Inclusive Recruitment through livestream training to achieve these learning outcomes:

  • Understand how a diverse and inclusive workforce benefits an organisation;
  • Recognise the importance of creating a good first impression and the implications of getting it wrong;
  • Appreciate the barriers potential candidates can face and what reasonable adjustments can be made;
  • Better equipped to improve recruitment outcomes by ensuring that documentation and selection processes are fair and inclusive;
  • Awareness of how our biases can inadvertently undermine the recruitment and selection process, including interviewing; and
  • Enable learners to reflect on their learning and translate it to their own working environments, including action planning for personal change.

We’ll also cover:

  • Tools of the trade– introducing a selection of innovative and experiential, drama-based training tools and techniques
  • User feedback– sharing evaluation results, client and user perspectives on this alternative approach to training and learning development

Please note, this isn’t a full training session. It’s an opportunity for Human Resources, Equality & Diversity, and Learning & Development professionals to try out elements of the programme, learn more about our work in this area, and to consider whether it’s something that they would be interested to run in their organisation.

What learners say

“I’d recommend [people] to undertake the training to challenge themselves and their preconceptions about inclusivity.”
“If you have an open mind and are able to reflect on what you’ve done in the past, then there is real value in attending the session to improve your thinking and approach to recruitment going forward.”
“I found the delivery format engaging and thought provoking. A very useful session that I would recommend to others. Well done all.”
“I enjoyed how informative and interactive the session was.”
“Highly recommended, thought provoking and effective, well delivered.”
“Sign up for it. It is thought provoking and fun!”
