Description

We're Altogether Different

We’re all human, all different – but sometimes it can be difficult to put ourselves in the shoes of others. The #YouEqualTech / Altogether Different workshop approach focuses on bringing Diversity and Inclusion to life via engaging empathy-building experiences. When people understand what exclusion feels like, they are more likely to connect with the challenges in a meaningful way, working together to find genuine practical solutions. Goodbye lip service to diversity and inclusion, hello future focused organisation.

We work at all levels with leading technology organisations like Sky, Ustwo and Big Radical – as well as manufacturing giants and small start ups alike. Sometimes using Virtual Reality, or performance art or high street tours - teams that are open to this new empathy-building approach get inclusive results fast, essential for connecting with our fast-changing world.

In this 30 minute workshop, Charlotte Butler, Founder of Altogether Different will lead you through a taster session outlining the innovation power of inclusive teams, before exploring themes of microagressions from award winning South London artist Heather Agyepong. The session will culminate in an interactive group exercise to demonstrate the universal phenomenon of unconscious bias and how we can work together to reduce it on a daily basis.

30 minute inclusion workshop featuring:

  • INTRO from Charlotte Butler, Founder Altogether Different

  • IN MY SHOES – Short film from Award Winning Performance Artist Heather Agyepong

  • PIGEON HOLED – Group exercise to build empathy around everyday microagressions
