About this issue

The IAF Global Flipchart is the International Association of Facilitators’ quarterly members publication with tips, tricks and resources for your individual facilitation practice and ideas to help you build your facilitation business and impact.

Making it Accessible!

Facilitation’s role in diversity and inclusion

Accessibility. The world is leveling up and asking for access. How do facilitators answer that call? No, it isn’t just about creating a diverse perspective. Because what is diversity without inclusion? And what is inclusion without belonging? This issue dives into some examples of accessibility from around the world and it seems to be a hot topic judging by the amount of articles that came pouring in. Nice to see. Shall we start with a round of applause for this:
