WHAT ARE ONLINE WORKSHOPS

Smith Assembly's 1.5 - 3 hour online workshops are emceed by you, but virtually-facilitated by us. We provide everything you need for a meaningful team building and jedi training experience including a Pre-Event Guide & Resources for Your Emcee, the Workshop Curriculum & Media, and Post-Event Bonus Materials for Your Team. On the day of the event, simply host a zoom call and screen share our materials.

Each online workshop features two innovators from another region of the world, showcases stories about their lives and communities, includes icebreakers and hands-on activities they co-designed, and presents their experiences and thoughts on the topic of JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion).

HOW WE DO IT

Make Your Team Culture Healthier & More Inclusive

Nurturing Your Openness

Changing attitudes and behaviors requires freedom from judgement. Our workshops create a neutral and safe space where you and your team will feel comfortable being exposed to new concepts, experimenting with different techniques, and asking questions. When your team uses your hands during our meaningful activities, and shares that experience with each other, your minds and hearts will open further to new perspectives and ideas.

Building Your Compassion

Demystifying others has been shown to increase inclusion and belonging. During our workshops, your team will be introduced to two up and coming global innovators and hear stories about how they are driving sustainable development. When you and your team members see the unique brilliance of the innovators and your colleagues in action, your compassion will build as well as your sense of inspiration.

Expanding Your Approach

Innovation is an iterative process and thrives when it's inclusive. Our diverse staff and global lens give you and your team an opportunity to casually observe and practice a variety of cross-cultural communication, collaboration, problem-solving, and product design techniques. You’ll see how we all sometimes make mistakes, then learn ways to acknowledge and overcome them. As you and your colleagues think more expansively, you’ll be better prepared for whatever comes your way.

OUR PROCESS

You Emcee, We Virtually-Facilitate

3.Post-EventPost-Event

We ensure you get the most value from your experience by helping your team integrate what they learned into your workplace. After your workshop, we’ll survey your team and provide you with a package of post-event bonus materials.

WE WANT TO BUILD WITH YOU

Make Your Workplace Healthier & More Inclusive

Learn how we can help you build trust, strengthen relationships, and improve inclusion within your team. A regular cadence of team building and jedi training activities will increase engagement, decrease turnover, and lead to greater team and company performance.

NOTE ABOUT COVID-19

To support the home-based, remote, and/or distributed ways you and your teams are now working, we’re creating a series of online workshops that you can do via video conference whenever works best for your schedule. We’ll resume hosting onsite workshops once pandemic-related safety protocols and restrictions on gatherings are no longer necessary.

Smith Assembly offers multi-dimensional learning experiences that promote healthier and more inclusive workplace cultures. We do this through a radically-inclusive approach in which we co-create our Team Building and JEDI Training workshops with leaders from the underserved communities supported by our donations.

We respectfully acknowledge that we're headquartered on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples including the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We're grateful to live, work, and play here and value our relationships with their land.
