Building restorative culture: a guide through the challenges of polarization and harmful conflict.
Welcome! We look forward to engaging with organizations large and small. In our current climate where every industry wrestles with polarization, harmful conflict and issues of belonging, World Outside My Shoes works with your community to see the opportunities to embed restorative practices and strategies for creating safe workplace environments.
We do this by coming along side your teams to learn about your values, expectations, and practices so as to discover opportunities to infuse connection through curiosity. Our hope is that integrating the philosophy of World Outside My Shoes will further strengthen the connective tissue within your organization.
All of our available presentations and learning opportunities seek to achieve the following:
- Explore methods and tools for effective introspection so as to meet differences with curiosity.
- Challenge our own identity and examine assumptions we make within the stories we tell and are told.
- Build our capacity to navigate the complexities of interpersonal conflict through case studies, testimonies, and stories that illustrate World Outside My Shoe’s values, and the innovation of those who have done so successfully, our Rwandan Partners and friends.
- Examine the dynamics and relationships of our social landscape through the lens of social, emotional, and neurological intelligence.

LET'S WORK TOGETHER!
Interactive Assemblies IN CORPORATE SETTINGS
No matter where you are in the world, our 30 to 90 minute presentations are available both in-person or online. Through a series of stories, we cover moments from the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda all the way through to the nation’s reconstruction and dynamics today.
Workshops are story-based learning experiences brimming with dynamic conversations! Participants will explore the decision points, choices, and key relationships involved in navigating times of tremendous risk both during the genocide as well as the physical and psychological demands of the years that followed.
Rwanda Educational Immersive Experience
“How can people live together peacefully when betrayal, murder, and genocide is such a recent part of their history?” That’s the question we address as we traverse the scenic hills of Rwanda for 10 days visiting memorials and school campuses, farms and factories, speaking with survivors, perpetrators and government officials, all working together to build a new Rwanda.
CONNECTING THROUGH CURIOSITY
Our work spans from professional development for educators, team building professional communities, keynotes for leadership programs, and more. Engagements are tailored to your community.
