We know how tricky it can be to hold the room at the end of a conference day. For the Human.School 2018 Conference we were tasked with designing a happy hour activity, so we built Recess to encourage lively conversations and relationship-building through quick, participatory activities. We explored topics such as workplace culture, personal empowerment, invisible labor, productive conflict, empathy, and others. We facilitated small groups groups through a series of prompts and exercises to break out of conventional ways of relating to one another in a work setting. Each conference attendee received a copy of these engagement strategies in the printed workbook, to use when they returned to their workplaces.
