  4. 4. 01 WORLD IA DAY 2019 EXERCISE: DOTS OVERVIEW • Observed small group exercise • Need ~20 volunteers (remainder observes) • Volunteers must be comfortable with my touching their foreheads (to apply a skin-safe sticker) • No talking once the activity begins Architecting Industry Events for Diversity & Inclusion | Jeffrey Ryan Pass | #WIADDC19 | #WIAD19 | 02.23.2019
  5. 5. 01 WORLD IA DAY 2019 EXERCISE: DOTS SETUP • No talking once the exercise begins (I mean it) • Participants stand in a line and close their eyes • Keeping their eyes close, I’ll apply a sticker to each volunteer’s forehead • Once I’ve applied all of the stickers, we’ll begin the exercise Architecting Industry Events for Diversity & Inclusion | Jeffrey Ryan Pass | #WIADDC19 | #WIAD19 | 02.23.2019
  6. 6. 01 WORLD IA DAY 2019 EXERCISE: DOTS INSTRUCTIONS • No talking (that includes ASL) • Find/form the group to which you belong • You have 3 minutes • I’ll provide a 30 second warning before time is up Architecting Industry Events for Diversity & Inclusion | Jeffrey Ryan Pass | #WIADDC19 | #WIAD19 | 02.23.2019
  7. 7. 01 WORLD IA DAY 2019 EXERCISE: DOTS DEBRIEF • We naturally seek out people that are similar to ourselves (at IAS/IAC we’ve always referred to ourselves as a tribe). • We naturally form groups that inadvertently exclude others. • It is less natural and more difficult to form one group of ‘people with stickers on their heads’ (without consideration of color or shape).

  11. 11. 01 WORLD IA DAY 2019 WORKSHOP EXERCISE Architecting Industry Events for Diversity & Inclusion | Jeffrey Ryan Pass | #WIADDC19 | #WIAD19 | 02.23.2019 The goal of this activity is to help make our industry events as diverse, inclusive, and safe as possible by sharing your: EXPERIENCES (happened to you) OBSERVATIONS (you witnessed) LESSONS LEARNED (personal, professional, etc.) RECOMMENDATIONS (constructive, realistic)
  12. 12. WORLD IA DAY 2019 HOW IT’S GOING TO WORK • Each row has stickies and pens (pass them around) • Boards are spread around the room (horizontal and vertical orientations; use whatever works best) • Pick a board, head over, and introduce yourself • Sticky and share (be honest, no accusations please) • Focus on industry conference-related diversity, inclusion, and safety topics • Affinity map like no one’s looking • Discuss, share, and synthesize • Nominate a spokes-person (panelists?) to share your board themes and learnings Architecting Industry Events for Diversity & Inclusion | Jeffrey Ryan Pass | #WIADDC19 | #WIAD19 | 02.23.2019 EXPERIENCES OBSERVATIONS LESSONS LEARNED RECOMMENDATIONS
