Co-Creating A More Diverse, Equitable, And Inclusive World With Appreciative Inquiry

Learn how to apply Appreciative Inquiry (AI) to create the social change of our time.

This moment is opportune for AI principles and tools to support the work on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues on the rise with calls to action such as #BlackLivesMatters, #MeToo, and #RefugeesWelcome. This course has been designed to support you through collaborative inquiry into what’s working and what’s possible to create the change we want to see in our workplaces, communities, and family systems.

This course is designed for all Appreciative Inquiry skill levels, whether you are new to AI or you’re an AI expert and yearning to incorporate DEI into your living AI practice. As BIPOC women facilitators, AI has been central to our resilience in social change work and strengthened our call-in culture work in organisations.
