HOW IT WORKS

In this annual event, a select group of esteemed professionals —practitioners, researchers and DAD participants from across The Netherlands, Europe and beyond— comes together to address a substantive issue that impacts how we work and live together. 

Following an interactive appreciative inquiry methodology, the evening is one in which we will examine a real-life challenge from multiple perspectives. We use an interdisciplinary, cross-sector approach to involve peers from business, education, government and civil society organisations. 

Our aim is to generate new ways of understanding as well as to identify potential solutions — while also strengthening cross-sector and interdisciplinary connections, networks, and alliances.

TOPIC

This year’s topic —BACKLASH— is not only making headlines worldwide but also increasingly causing friction for many of us in our daily workplaces and communities.

The Lab is an expertly facilitated opportunity to explore how we encounter, respond, anticipate and mitigate the latest wave of pushback and resistance to embracing differences in all of its iterations…and with all of its implications.
