Better workshops with liberating structures

How do you make sure that everyone gets heard in workshops, not just the ones who can talk the loudest? Mia Peters has been using Liberating Structures – a set of tools for disrupting power dynamics to foster inclusion and innovation – in local government. She’ll share how you can use these tools in workshops.
