An Inclusivv conversation is a unique experience, that focuses on opening space for structured dialogue in small group settings on important topics.
What To Expect
What you can expect from the conversation will be small group gatherings, 3 big questions, equal time to share, and a shared experience.
Whether in person or online, your host will move you into small groups. For each question, you will discuss in your same group. At the end, there will be time for all to come together to discuss what they've learned.
It is important that each person gets equal time to share.
To build space for us to have these important conversation, Inclusivv trains each facilitator to create a brave space. To create this space, your host will explain the ground rules and open space for consent. For those who agree, they will move on to the conversation. The rules exist to maintain the parameters of what is expected within the brave space, and to begin to build the psychological safety of the group.
Inclusivv's Ground Rules
Listen With Curiosity
Engage With Empathy
Respect Those With Lived Experience
After agreeing to the ground rules, your host will introduce you to this conversation’s topic. We do not expect everyone to be an expert on the subject. In fact, these conversations are structured for all levels of understanding. Your host will be there if you have any questions.
First, you’ll be asked to answer an introduction question. This is when you first will enter your small groups and get to know the people you're with for the experience.
After this, your host will introduce the first question. The conversations all consist of 3 questions that take us on a learning journey. You get between 12-15 minutes for each question to discuss within your group.
The important thing to remember in the break out rooms is that the conversations are structured so that every person gets equal time to share.
Notice an introvert in the room? If you feel comfortable - make sure they have time to share. If you’re not comfortable nudging, you can let your host know. They will assist you.
After the third question, you’ll all come back together and have a shareout moment, where you can reflect on what was said in each group.
You’ll always remain with your same group - we’d like for you to build a feeling of trust and safety within these conversations.
These conversations are never recorded.
Our key rule is - what is said here stays here, but what is learned here leaves here.
