Celebrate Black History Month.

*Muralist @Elizabethpatriciart

Create an interactive Mural.

As part of our "Remembrance in Action" series we've created an opportunity for remote teams to deepen their inclusive values, celebrate Black history month, and show how everyone's contribution fits into the bigger picture.

 

During a facilitated 60-minute activity your teams will have an opportunity to create a virtual Mural that presents an actionable vision of what Black history month means to your company. Read the FAQ to learn more about the virtual activity.

If you haven't already taken meaningful steps to further a workplace and a world that supports Black folx, this might not be the place to start (though we might be able to help). Trust is built by many small actions over time and "Remembrance in Action" is about making real the reality that Black History Month, along with each thematic activity in this series, is celebrated and honored with intention throughout the year.

"I think like many people of color in corporate America or any workplace sometimes you have to bring only parts of yourself to work, but the 24/7/365 represents me bringing all of myself to all things I do all the time. This year has given me more runway to do that given some platforms I have in the community and at my company."

How it works.

Step 1. Customize your event.

During our initial conversation, we'll share how the interactive activity works and learn more about your goals related to Black History Month and building your workplace culture. From there, we'll fine-tune your Mosaicli Mural program in a way that engages, inspires, and unifies your teams cross-culturally. We have both self-directed and facilitated team options to accommodate varying team needs.

Step 2. Deliver meaningful results.

At the end of each session, participants walk away with:

  • Meaningful connections as a result of small group interactions and team bonding.

  • A diverse understanding of what celebration and support can look like in relationship to Black History Month.

  • Actionable takeaways that help to authentically align your company with its inclusive values.

  • A virtual Mosaicli Mural that demonstrates the importance of everyone's contribution to the bigger picture.

Step 3. Inspire ongoing engagement.

Post-event, we can explore other program options that build on this activity and integrate with your current culture-building initiatives such as:

  • Leadership training and community-building workshops.

  • Virtual onboarding programs that can be adapted in-person.

  • Training ERG leaders to succeed and to have greater organizational impact and effectiveness.

What happens during the activity.


During your teams 60 minute event they will be guided by a diverse team of 2 lead facilitators and 1 to 4 tech/art support staff. When folx arrive to the virtual Zoom session, they will be greeted with inviting music and an on-screen prompt encouraging folks to "arrive" by sharing in the chat-box. For example, the arrival prompt might say, "in the chat-box, write a word that represents what Black History Month means to you," or, "write one word that represents a hope you have for this session." Next, our facilitation team introduces ourselves and what we do as a company. Then we bring context to what this "Remebrance in Action" series is about, we share a video about how we use art and storytelling to help deepen inclusive values, and outline the goals of the session theme: "Celebrate Black History Month." Then, after one of our facilitators shares a personal story of remembrance, solidarity, and action, we invite participants to reflect on what these things mean to them. After guided to explore a list of actionable steps people can take at work, in their personal lives, or in their community, participants browse images and symbols that represent the "why" behind the "what." While music sets a reflective mood, participants add color, symbols, shapes, and textures to their unique Mural tile. After completing their piece, particpants break out into small groups to share. Then, we come back to the fuller group to debrief their small group experiences. What did you learn? What surprised you? Has has your idea of remembrance changed? Solidarity? Support? What moved you? Why? How? Art and story helps people feel more connected to one another and one of the key points we drive forward is that taking time to listen and to connect is foundational to create workplaces that inspire and support everyone. Before ending, we provide guiding frameworks and worksheets that 1) Demonstrate solidarity and support in action, 2) strengthen ERG effectiveness and 3) provides an opportunity for folx to imagine how Mosaicli Mural programming can integrate to support their vision for a workplace culture that respects and engages everyone. Once the event is finished, our team puts everyone's tiles together to create their Mural. Within 24 hours we provide you a completed virtual Mural png document to send to your teams, share on social media, or print as posters providing a tangible takeaway.
