Safe Space: Discussion Facilitation

  • Description: Today’s workforce is extremely diverse. Canada boasts peoples from different countries, ethnicities, religions, races, sexual orientations, genders, ages, philosophies, etc. Depending upon your organization’s culture, team members may have honest and real questions around interacting with different types of people in the organization. We don’t know what we don’t know. Breakfast Culture’s approach uses five components to help to facilitate these discussions to make your organization comfortable with uncomfortable conversations. We are all on our own journeys. #SafeSpace

  • Focus: discussion facilitation around human rights issues; e.g. racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, ableism, etc. in the workplace

  • Process:

    1. Pre-Discussion: We will work with your organization to determine the scope of work for your discussion. This could include a pre-survey and/or pre-interviews with participants, research from recent employee engagement surveys, or simply a phone call to determine the focus for your organization’s Safe Space Discussion.

    2. During Discussion: We remind participants that “we don’t know what we don’t know.” Our approach uses five components to help facilitate these discussions to make your organization comfortable with uncomfortable conversations. We are all on our own journeys. #SafeSpace

    3. Post-Discussion: We can create a report with recommendations for next steps on your organization’s diversity and inclusion journey and provide a perspective on where your organization lies on the Inclusion Continuum (The Human Equity Advantage: Beyond Diversity to Talent Optimization, Wilson 2013).

  • Pricing: Depending upon client requirements and the number of participants we recommend that each discussion take place for a minimum of one hour (without a break) to a maximum of two hours (with a 15-minute break). Costs include both preparation, discussion and recommendation report. Sometimes during the Pre-Discussion, it is determined that a #SafeSpace Discussion is not required, Breakfast Culture will still charge for this time only.
