The Diversity Icebreaker is a dynamic group training and development concept based on a questionnaire measuring preferences in communication, teamwork and problem-solving styles. In intercultural trainings, the Diversity Icebreaker breaks down stereotypes based on national culture, and stresses flexibility and communication skills as the bridges to explore diversity. The workshop empowers individuals and groups to establish their own shared language and set of cultural norms to understand each other and work together effectively.

I enjoyed [the workshop] a great deal and I felt it was a great activity to make people consider diversity in different way. Lots of humour, it was very funny (…) it kept it light but gave a lot of information.

Kelli McLoud-Schingen, Former President of SIETAR USA


OuttakesFacilitators and trainers participating in the session will first experience a real Diversity Icebreaker workshop (first 1h) - just the way the "regular" participants in workshops do. It will be the starting point for the latter train-the-trainer part, during which the facilitation of DI with various groups and in different areas will be discussed in detail.

Following the workshop you will:

  • - be able to conduct the classic Diversity Icebreaker workshop with groups from 9 to 100 and more participants,
  • - as well as design follow-up group activities based on the tool;
  • - will gain knowledge about research and theory behind the tool;
  • - will become part of the ever-growing network of the DI facilitators;
  • - will obtain access to user-materials (PowerPoints, databases, documentation, etc.)
  • - get tokens for discounts for future DI orders
  • - get 15 Diversity Icebreaker questionnaires + extra materials (value of 315,00€) included in the workshop fee
