Creating Culture Change through Innovative Conversation “Technology,” with Jeffrey Van Dyk & and Omega Institute co-founder, Jennifer Graham
I’ve heard a ton of ideas on culture change and creating inclusive dialogue, but nothing so well thought-out, creative and scalable as this.
Jennifer Graham is a visionary “conversation cultivator” and the Founder and CEO of Inclusivv, a visionary culture change company. She spent years running TEDxAtlanta, but got frustrated by the 1-way dialogue. She wanted to move from me-to-you “ideas worth spreading” to a conversation that could bring multiple diverse voices together for “conversations that matter.”
How do you get people to engage with one another around difficult subjects? How do you get them to listen to one another and learn from the experience? How do you get bosses and subordinates from diverse backgrounds to gain common understanding? These are some of the questions that Jennifer has been able to answer with her unique “conversation technology” that’s at the heart of what her company, INCLUSIVV, does.
One part of the conversation that made my mind explode just a bit was how this “conversation technology” can be used to get people to engage more deeply and meaningfully at events, in book launches and around programs you may run in your company.
She is on a mission to design a more inclusive and sustainable world by using the art of conversation to drive real and lasting change.
