Inclusive Facilitation Playbook
Think of the last event you attended, either as a facilitator or participant. There were probably a few people regularly chipping in, and others who didn’t speak at all.
In a workshop, only a proportion of attendees actively engage, asking questions, challenging the ideas presented, and contributing their own ideas.
That's why Agility in Mind created the Inclusive Facilitation Playbook.
As facilitators, we have sometimes indulged in the view that we’re providing professional training, and attendees need to take responsibility for their own outcomes. However, this is missing a trick. By making the workshop environment more equitable and putting systems in place to help identify and remove forms of exclusion, everyone benefits
Active attendees get to hear a wider range of ideas
Less active attendees will connect more with the topic
Facilitators will lead more interesting workshops
