There workshops use group gaming and discussion to engage participants in the complex issues around inclusion and diversity. The games combine an impressive and sophisticated understanding of the problems with a simple and effective delivery mechanism to prompt behavioural change.

I like the new online tool. The game highlighted a number of the challenges faced by firms and recruiting partners in relation to diversity and inclusion – not all of which can be addressed by a “quick fix”. It was a great catalyst for further discussion and sharing of practice with those attending the workshop.

We have been impressed by the results of this collaboration. Our values and aims align well with those of InclusIQ, and we found their experts patient and attentive to detail in the development process. We now have two products that we use regularly, and receive good feedback from our clients. They enhanced our workshops and helped refresh our approach to some challenging topics. Overall, we have developed a sound partnership with InclusIQ which will definitely continue as we develop more games together.

The unique format of a games workshop allowed us to identify different types of behaviour in an easily relatable way and without fear of being ‘wrong’. The event was seamless, informative but also entertaining. The room was buzzing confirming it was a great success. I’d recommend the games workshop to any organisation looking to tackle these themes in a more innovative and thought provoking manner.

Suzanne delivered a highly engaging and thought-provoking workshop using InclusIQ’s innovative digital games to 40 attendees of a BCSWomen event. The unique online game format encouraged us to consider how to call out bad behaviour, to handle difficult conversations. She introduced the topic in an approachable way, ensuring that the session was interactive, and – rather importantly – that no-one in the room felt like the villain in this gender-focused event. The games based format did a super job of getting everyone to take part, and I was impressed with Suzanne’s ability to combine light-heartedness and humour with a serious topic. The feedback we received was outstanding and we’d have Suzanne or a games based workshop back in a heartbeat.

The games brought to life nuanced and complex issues being faced by employees and employers who are seeking to overcome cultural and social barriers to increasing diversity. The way the games are constructed using drawn characters, rather than ‘real life’actors makes the situations and characters universally relatable, and really allowed the delegates to imagine the situations and what we would do in a way that felt much more risk-free and natural than other methods of delivering the same kind of awareness and training. I highly recommended InclusIQ as one of the leading UK players in this field who are helping companies overcome challenges in an innovative, exciting, and engaging way.

The InclusIQ serious games based event was fantastic. It led to great dialogue around thought-provoking topics and was a great way to network whilst learning.
Chantel GaberHead of Member Engagement- England and Wales, Law Society of Scotland
The mentoring game provided a springboard far beyond a normal discussion. The different pathways meant whichever way the group navigated, they found interesting learning points about what it takes to manage mentoring relationships. It was a fun way to frame the discussion!

The workshop was even better than I’d expected, a really innovative mix of technology and live discussion, The game was fantastic in immediately sparking interaction, and helped people see the negative consequences of even well-intended mistakes, as well as how to avoid those choices in the future. It got people sharing their own experiences and perceptions from the start. I’d definitely recommend it!

A very worthwhile and valuable workshop. Working in teams of three around a computer, ’employees’ are asked to investigate diversity issues in their workplace and how they impact on consumers….followed by detailed analysis of the game play. The workshop highlighted what goes on in the back of people’s minds when making decisions.
