Did you know 50% of guests at events only talk to people they already know?
Do you run networking events but despair that many guests only talk to the people they know already? Now you can fix this with Care Labels For Humans customisable ID cards and make your event inclusive and interactive.
We know from research that attendees dread that 'awkward hello' moment when they have to approach a new person for the first time. It's human nature is to stay with those we already know, but this doesn't make for good networking.
“I was fed up of feeling awkward at social and networking events so I made some nice things to fix that #awkward ‘Hello’ moment”
Zoe E Breen, Founder, Care Labels For Humans
Care Labels For Humans is a visual toolkit owned by each attendee which helps them to break the ice by communicating their identity and interests as well as how they are feeling about connecting with others at the time of the event.
There are three types of Care Label:
A for Approach
Pick an Approach (A) Label to describe how ready you are for human contact:
B for Behaviour
Pick an Behaviour (B) Label to describe how you want to interact with others:
C for (Self)-Care or Chat
Pick up to four C Labels to express the things you enjoy and like to talk about:
The tool includes Care Labels which focus on a person's readiness to interact and preferred way of communicating. This makes the kit more inclusive for people with who might 'communicate differently' due to mental health conditions, neuro-divergence, speech or sensory challenges.
The tool works flexibly and can be used at a conference or networking event, in a club or society, or for co-produced events where participant input is central.
Face-to-face interactions and events are at the heart of most influencing and decision-making processes in communities and wider society. Everyone deserves an equal chance to participate regardless of how they prefer to communicate.
We are about to embark on some research with users of Care Labels For Humans which will help us to understand in more detail how they benefit from the tool.
The findings will help us to create online resources which will enable more people to run their own Care Labels For Humans event. By the end of 2019 we want to include a range of videos and written guides to help you run your event covering topics like facilitation, safeguarding and signposting.
We are offering a range of individual and bundled rewards depending on your pledge. All of these items are exclusively available to you ahead of our online store launch in September 2019.
