Besides developing the online simulation that allows users to live through the daily lives of the characters and understand the challenges they face, Soristic also develops workshop curriculum to enable workshop participants to further develop an empathetic and inclusive mindset that will not only make them better future leaders but also contribute to a more inclusive and

compassionate society. 

Our specially curated workshop curriculum for schools and corporate can be conducted in-person or online. 

For Schools

Our “In My Shoes” Empathy Workshop for youths is a combination of role play, reflection, purposeful discussion and skills training to enable youth to develop an empathetic and inclusive mindset. Through the online simulation, the youths live the lives of characters with conditions such as depression and learning difficulties that they may encounter in their daily school life. The youths are then provided with a safe space to engage in purposeful discussions on their experiences and reflections with their peers and our facilitators. This is lastly followed by skills training on how they can be more empathetic and inclusive.

Workshop's objectives

  • Learn others’ perspectives and understand their feelings
  • Recognise schoolmates and friends that need help
  • Practice empathy by showing compassion and support for others
  • Develop more productive and satisfying relationships for a healthy and inclusive school culture

For Corporate

Our “In My Shoes” inclusion and diversity workshop for corporate centres around empathy skills training to enable better workplace leadership, higher job performance as well as a more inclusive and diverse work environment. The workshop is a combination of role play, reflection, case studies, purposeful discussion and skills training to support participants to develop an empathetic and inclusive mindset.
