What is diversophy®
diversophy® is the powerful game that helps you engage successfully with people of other backgrounds as well as understand the dynamics of your own culture. diversophy® brings people together, not only to learn about each other’s cultures, but to connect in a very human way. Players are enriched by each other’s stories, values, knowledge and skills. The us versus them mindset is replaced with mutual appreciation.
GSI diversophy® also offers cultural workshops in which the games are played to help businesses, academic classes, community groups and individuals improve their cultural competences and cross-cultural communication skills. Our workshops are facilitated all over the world offering everyone who plays the opportunity to enhance their cultural competence and communication skills in a safe learning environment. We strongly focus on the importance of communication between people.
A large selection of intercultural learning games is available for facilitators, trainers, business owners, teachers, social workers and individuals. The games are generally played in small groups with a deck of theme-centered cards. Participants take turns responding to 5 kinds of questions and challenges found on the cards and discuss their reactions with each other.
diversophy® games come in several formats as:
— As a full game focused on a specific culture, cultural topic or culturally relevant skills to be developed
— As a mini-game, with a smaller selection of cards, more practical for fewer groups or smaller one-time learning events
