HI, WE ARE IN-VISIBLE
WE BUILD INCLUSIVE WORKING CULTURES
It is 2021 and diversity is a buzz word. Although corporates openly commit to diversification and inclusion, women are still underrepresented and the gender pay gap is an ongoing reality. However, the need to become more women-friendly in order to keep up with the competition is being recognised –and many want to do better. We are here to help.
Als Agentur unterstützen wir unsere Kund:innen dabei, Gleichstellung voranzutreiben und Arbeitskultur
inklusiv zu gestalten. Damit Diskriminierung keinen Platz (mehr)
hat und Unternehmen eine Atmopshäre schaffen, in der alle Mitarbeitenden ihr Potential einbringen können. Dazu geben wir Workshops, Trainings und beraten individuell. Wie können wir
dich und dein Team unterstützen?
As an agency, we support our clients in driving forward gender equity in order to make working culture more inclusive. We assist in building working environments that leave no room for discrimination and help companies to create an atmosphere in which all employees feel invited to contribute their potential. We give workshops, trainings and advice. How can we support you and your team?
WORKSHOPS AND TRAININGS
In our three trainings and workshops you have the opportunity to interactively work on important topics relating to equality, diversity and inclusion under the guidance of our experts. You can attend the formats as an individual, a team or ask for them to be tailored to your organisation. For more information, just click on the bubbles.
Science meets practice: Our interdisciplinary consulting approach at IN-VISIBLE consists of three phases, extending from problem identification to strategy development and implementation of measures. We work with methods of qualitative social research such as ethnographic interviews as well as with creative, practical approaches. We use design thinking, story listening and non-violent communication to convey abstract facts and to do justice to the complexity of equality, diversity and inclusion.
Equal opportunities are only possible if the structures and processes that are embedded in the company relating to gender, diversity, inclusion and innovation are changed. In order to get to the root of the problem, on top of our existing workshops and trainings, we also offer tailored advice to organisations with regards to their specific needs. With our many years of experience, we support transformation towards a sustainable working culture that caters to all. Don't hesitate to contact us and we will find out how we can best help your company.
We dream of a just (working) world, in which power is distributed fairly and people help each other instead of getting their elbows out. A world in which it makes no difference whether
you are a man, woman or identify as neither, a mother or a father. A (working) world that does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of age, sexuality, race, religion or disability.
But because dreaming alone is not enough and the current job market is still full of prejudice, discrimination and power inequalities, there is IN-VISIBLE. Together with our customers, we question and transform the current working culture towards creating an inclusive environment.
1. WE WORK INTERSECTIONALLY
We work with an intersectional understanding of feminism, which always thinks of »gender« in relation to other categories such as race, ability, sexuality. It cannot be said often enough: not all women are the same.
2. WE WORK HOLISTICALLY
Even if our focus is on women, non-binary and trans people, we include the men's perspective and take it seriously. Because change only works if all of we are all convinced of its necessity and work along side each other.
3. WE WORK SYSTEMICALLY
Our utopia of equality involves shaking the system. We work on problems that women encounter in the context of work and look for structural solutions. This approach stands in opposition to a »female empowerment« approach, which sees responsibility and opportunities in individual women to pursue careers and assert themselves in the »male shark tank«.
4. WE KNOW OUR LIMITS
Our expertise lies in gender equity and women- we have acquired theoretical knowledge and our own experience. We are aware that not only women are discriminated against in the workplace, but also, for example, people with disabilities, trans people or BPoC. We therefore work with experts from our network on these topics.
5. WE WORK COLLABORATIVELY
We are not a classical service provider who presents ready-made catalog solutions, but understand the cooperation with our customers as collaborative and on eye-level.
IN-VISIBLE was founded by Rea in order to bring to life her vision of making her academic knowledge from Gender Studies (University of Cambridge) usable and tangible in the workplace. Our team now includes five international members who contribute their interdisciplinary skills and personal experience on a project basis.
Besides Melissa, Rea, Habiba and Fran (from left on the photo), there is Trisha and a large network of qualified trainers and consultants. Together, we combine competencies in design thinking and economics, marketing and PR, machine learning and political science, among others.
Theresa Kauffeld, Founder Equalista
"I have participated in numerous workshops run by IN-VISIBLE and especially like the combination of hands-on knowledge and theory as well as the focus on applicability. I am always inspired, motivated and empowered to make use of the acquired methods."
"I am thankful that we had the opportunity to attend this workshop. I will try to be more open to people and try to give everyone the feeling that people can come and talk to me – so I get the opportunity to learn.“
Davide Bracci, Project Manager Mercator Foundation
"Even with constraints posed by the pandemic, I have experienced an excellent and flexible project guidance that was centered in the needs of our personal team and characterised of a relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to IN-VISIBLE we not only reached our project goals but also had fun in the process."
