Facilitating and leading great meetings can be really difficult - balancing the needs of the groups, ensuring all voices are heard and avoiding groupthink are just a few things to look out for. The roles we all play in meetings can greatly influence the level of inclusivity in your meetings - build an awareness that you can set the tone, you can ensure all voices are heard and you can encourage new ideas and diverse thoughts.
Who's it for?
Many of us are regularly attending meetings - how often do you hear from the same voices, saying pretty much the same things? Getting new ideas, hearing new voices, and driving more valuable engagement requires an 'inclusivity' mindset when preparing, hosting and leading meetings.
