This introductory workshop is a team building activity that is fitting for groups that want to learn more about each other's working styles or are looking for ways to better support each other.
What's in Your Backpack
This workshop will focus on exploring our salient identities and how they make up who we are. It allows participants to think critically and makes space for individuals to reflect on their personal experiences and ways that shapes their thoughts and opinions. This activity uses the metaphor of a backpack in which we carry our identities and the ways in which they develop over time through the experiences we've had, people we've met and places we've been. This introductory workshop is fitting for groups that are wanting to learn more about each other or are aiming to build a stronger sense of community.
Please note that all workshops are facilitated by trained OPAL Education Ambassadors.
