Hi, I am Gioia (Joya). I have more than fifteen years of experience in Learning and Development and in the promotion of cultural diversity.
I love empowering people and organisations to work collaboratively, identify and make the most out of what makes them different, and create a fairer world.
I specialise in:
COLLABORATIVE PROJECT DESIGN
I facilitate participative planning and co-creation sessions that bring different stakeholders together in order to evaluate projects and products, design new solutions or test ideas. See some examples here.
TRAINING AND WORKSHOPS
I lead tailor made workshops on subjects such as active listening, intercultural communication and inclusive practices. I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds, including children, young people and vulnerable individuals. See some examples here.
WRITTEN RESOURCES AND RESEARCH
I carry out research and create informative, educational and promotional content about themes ranging from cultural diversity, to social justice and how to work collaboratively. See some examples here.
ITALIAN AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE
I am a qualified teacher of Italian as a foreign language and love to enable people to become more confident about their communication skills. Recent collaborations include the Italian Cultural Institute and the University of Venice.
