Institute for Inclusive Innovation

NIET NORMAAL
There is no such thing as being 'normal'.

It is typically human to be a-typical. Yet products, services, and algorithms are developed by and for a largely homogenous demographic. This leads to a growing disconnect between organisations and their stakeholders. 

 

At Niet Normaal Institute for Inclusive Innovation (NNIII) we believe we need to leverage human diversity if we want to smoothly navigate our increasingly digital society. That's why we help organisations and individuals to find their competitive edge in a changing world that demands inclusive practices.

 

To do that, we offer transformative learning experiences with a special focus on diversity and inclusion. By taking part in our science based programmes, you develop future oriented business and leadership skills while leveraging diversity in yourself and others.

How our science based learning experiences transform you

1. Action

We start off actively, by transforming the context of the programme into a safe space where you can be yourself.

3. Application

We explore strategies and tactics to make diversity work to the benefit of ourselves, the organisation we work for and society at large.

2. Analysis

As a group we analyse a-typicalities in ourselves and others. What super powers and what vulnerability does it bring?

4. Allyship

Together we develop tools to actively advance the culture of inclusion through intentional, positive and conscious efforts.
