Create a Safe Space for events and places where everyone is able to fully contribute because they feel safe, supported and face no threats.
A SafeSpace Plus ™ encourages every participant to contribute and participate fully in an environment free from harassment where differences are embraced and used constructively for positive outcomes.
Leaders and organizers can create the conditions to increase productive collaboration and reduce organizational risk.
*see footnote for references
Amplify your peoples contributions, creating a fast moving innovative organization where different viewpoints are welcomed and people feel safe in their activities. In a SafeSpace Plus organization, every member understands what is expected of them and are enabled to confidentially report incidents. Leaders are empowered to take action in a proactive and timely way minimizing risks to the organization.
Conference and Events
Create events and gatherings that actively include all participants in a positive, welcoming, safe environment. In a SafeSpace Plus ™ event, every participant, leader, speaker, attendee, and vendor acknowledges the Code of Conduct so that their actions align with your desired outcomes. Organizers have a direct line of communication with the activities if you want to avoid any escalations and destructive communication.
