how can my organization use b inc.?
Everyone from front line workers to top management can benefit from ongoing and sustained learning. Here are just a few examples of how your organization might want to incorporate a B Inc into your business curriculum:
You have a new staff member who openly identifies as a transgender person. How can you ensure your colleagues are on point with sensitivity, language and concepts to protect the humanity of transgender co-workers?
You know that your HR practices are outdated and oppressive judging by the lack of diversity in your team and the mistreatment of certain employees. How can you take action to ensure that your team reflects a variety of perspectives and skills?
As management, you notice a great deal of conflict between your staff members based on race and sexuality. How can you address these issues with your staff to ensure the physical and emotional safety of all?

2017 / 2018 Season
Nationally renowned B Inc facilitator, Rania El Mugammar is leading the program’s first workshop of our 2017/2018 season as part of the SummerWorks Intensive Leadership Program (S.L.I.P.), a series of public events that explore how we can remove barriers and dismantle systems of oppression through artistic practice. We’re offering opportunities to collaborate through workshops, training and consultation to meet the needs and goals of your organization.
Presented in Partnership with Generator, and b current performing arts, this workshop for artists explores the language, theories and practices of anti-oppression in depth. Institutional, community based and organizational strategies for building equity and unlearning oppression are central to the content and objectives of the workshop. Creative, technical and collaborative models for building equity and liberation will be explored. Group activities, case studies and discussion are critical tools to apply the learnings of this workshop.
Participants will have access to a plethora of digital and print resources to continue their learning journey beyond the scope of the session.
The little spaces that could: How independent theatre companies are building community
I had just taken the helm of b current performing arts, a 26-year-old company dedicated to theatre from the Black and brown diaspora. My very first desire as the incoming artistic director was to transform our suite at Artscape Wychwood Barns into a working studio theatre.
