Community doesn’t just happen by magic, there are forces at play that help bring people together to create that magic. Communities are more vital than ever and the value they bring in organisations is often underestimated. Building communities helps to create a collaborative culture by sharing best practices, helping to increase efficiency, retention and wellbeing. I deliver workshops in three main areas, community building, diversity and inclusion and career planning and all of them have the theme of community through them.
My community building workshops cater for different stages. I cover a range of different areas such as: how to build a community, how to rebuild and energise, building a community manifesto and how to self-sustain and operationalise a community.
Workshops can be delivered as a 2 hour crash course or be tailored and be delivered over a day.
Each workshop leaves participants with an actionable plan to go away and implement, as well as a new community of other people to help them with their goals.
As a self-starter and someone who has navigated through different career paths and been in industries where I’m often the only person of colour, I’ve learned to navigate through industries, battle imposter syndrome, leverage my personal network and build a personal brand with authentic storytelling.
Each of these workshops leave participants with actionable plans to help impact their career or startup.
Having Built Muslamic Makers, an inclusive community to get more Muslims into tech, and worked on implementing many diversity and inclusion practices in companies where I’ve worked on and researched best practices across the world, I now deliver a workshop specifically targeted at startup founders on building in diversity and inclusion from the start.
At the end of the workshop, founders will walk away with knowledge and best practices as well as an actionable plan on how to make sure diversity is built into the foundation of their company and not an add-on that comes many years later.
If any of the workshops are of interest then get in touch and I’ll send a detailed breakdown. As well as workshops, I am also available for facilitating events and also to work over a period of time with selected clients.
