Inclusive Meetings

Workshop content

Have you ever been in a meeting and had something relevant to contribute, but didn't have the space to speak? Or feel uncomfortable contributing? 

Imagine this scenario: You've logged into a Zoom meeting. Everyone is there and chatting. Your camera is on and everyone can hear you. You wait patiently for the meeting to start and suddenly they say, "Oh, we didn't see you!" There were only four people in the meeting... This is what we might call delusional blindness: some people don't seem to exist to others. 

Unconscious bias can have a negative impact on meetings, leading people to think that some people will have something important to contribute and others will not. 

In this workshop, we will share good meeting facilitation practices that promote an inclusive environment where everyone is involved, heard and appreciated. This workshop also includes a checklist on how to run an effective meeting that creates space for all voices to be heard.



Examine how unconscious biases can affect how meetings are held, how everyone participates, and who is heard and appreciated;


Understand the concept of "do no harm" to ensure that no one is actively silenced;


Learn 3 strategies for amplifying voices when others are cut off, interrupted or have no space to speak;


Learn to overcome conformity bias by creating a space where others would feel comfortable sharing opposing views.
