Where do you feel welcome?
Have you ever stopped to think about where you feel welcome and what it is at that space, event or place that makes you feel like that?
One way of thinking about this as a group is to use this sheet of 20 events and to mark up those you think you’d feel welcome at and those you think you wouldn’t. It’s a good starting point for discussion.
Why not give this sheet out to a small group of staff. Why would they feel happy attending some events and not others. Is it about the activity, the people who might be there, the welcome they might receive, their own perceptions and prejudice about a type of activity or type of person?
Go on – give it a try!
