Diversity Space Meeting by Maria Todosiychuk

This board game invites a multicultural team to experience a space journey towards each other in order to learn more about each other’s cultural background as well as individuality. Each player being an Alien in this game, starts their flight from a Planet of their choice towards the Sun, and crosses a number of zones that determine the mood of the game actions. During the game, the players will Contact other Aliens, answer Questions from the Universe, discover Skeletons in the Airlock, dive into Emotional Stardust, clean up the Space Debris, experience Gravity by Tradition and many other things in a cosmic setting of this game which fosters Universal love and inclusion.

Diversity Space Meeting game

This game is perfect for multicultural teams, classes, or other groups of culturally diverse players. It can be used by intercultural educators, HRs at international companies, Leaders of culturally diverse teams, in order to raise awareness of inclusivity and bring team members closer together. The game can also be played without a facilitator by a diverse team on its own.

Unlike other games on this web-site, this one does not require a professional interculturalist to facilitate it. No special intercultural knowledge is required. The offline version can be conducted by anyone in the role of facilitator or can be played by a group of up to 6 people on their own. If you would like to conduct it for a larger audience, it is possible!!! 

Diversity Space Meeting is good to:

  • let the team get to know each other much better than they do
  • create stronger connections among the team members
  • raise intercultural awareness and the sense of inclusivity in a diverse group
  • correct negative attitudes and assumptions towards people who are “different”
  • improve communications in the team and its productivity!

This was an excellent activity to really connect people. I was surprised how deep our spaceship team was able to go in such a short time. Thank you for sharing this and I look forward to using with my multicultural teams.
Julia Gaspar-Bates

Thanks so much! It’s always exciting and inspiring to see how people are managing to adapt awesome in-person games to awesome online ones. Thanks for sharing it with us. I loved the idea of speaking as aliens from fictitious planets but with non-fictitious facts. Works really nicely.
KerryAnn
This game is very engaging, fun, and has a true potential for deep learning. It can be good for teams to come back and revisit the process regularly.

It was easy to forge connections through the game with people I had not met before. We had some real human (alien) moments of emotion and fun!

This was a great re-framing of interacting with people from different cultures. Hugely insightful and works well in either face to face or remote venues!
Raymond Kimball
Academy Professor, US Military Academy
I loved the metaphors used with the aliens and the planets. It created a distancing that made it easier to share about our differences. I am curious now to learn more about the “aliens” with whom I travelled.
Staci Block

It was great to share ideas with aliens from all over the universe in a funny and creative way and it was wonderful how we could do it online. I felt like I was not online 🙂

This would make a great game to get people to introspect about their own culture, and to listen to someone else explain theirs. Loved it!
