Diversity
Hackathon

2-day in-company workshop

There is no such thing as being normal. Discover your own diversity and how make it work for the community. 

What is it, and why is it important?

Appreciation and inclusion go a long way towards producing highly innovative, collaborative and productive teams. The most effective teams and leaders know the value that comes from recognizing the successes of those with whom they work. In many ways, how well your team handles difference depends on the example and standards you set. The way forward begins with you and the degree to which you are open and active about working to foster healthy, diverse, and inclusive environments and teams.

 

In this hackathon, we will develop strategies to communicate authentic appreciation and demonstrate allyship in meaningful ways. Your team will leave with strategies that will help them increase organizational productivity, job satisfaction, engagement, loyalty and physical and mental health in the workplace.

What does this hackathon entail?

​Day 1: Empathy building

  • In the first part of this hackathon we focus on empathy-building, to help your team build trust and  awareness around key diversity and inclusion concepts. We create a compassionate space for team members to open up and get to know each other at a deeper level, while building the foundation from which to continue the diversity and inclusion journey.

 

Day 2: Practicing appreciation and allyship

  • What does it mean to be a thoughtful ally? It's time to move past intentions into action. In this action packed second part of the hackathon, your team get a chance to practice appreciation and will learn about allyship best practices in a compassionate environment.
