WHAT IS THE VALUE-ADD?
This is an environment where you are prompted to share your bold ideas for inclusion while being supported by inclusion trainers. We offer 50% instruction and 50% hands-on learning. Participants engage in this one-of-a-kind experience before the seminar, during the seminar, and afterwards. How does this happen? Preparation materials and videos are sent to participants via the ‘Bloom Inclusion App’ before and after the seminar to optimize each participants growth no matter where they are on their inclusion journey.
Solutions Based Approach to Innovation in Inclusion
We believe in tackling work-place issues and honoring your key performance indicators within your strategic plan. The foundational pedagogy we are using are the Social Designs 4 C's principles; Care, Confidence, Competence, and Community.
Everyone, including our presenters, are learners and teachers. So, come to Bloom Inclusion with your ideas, possible solutions, challenges, and success stories. We will help you find ways to grow from all of our collective experiences.
