Agata Urbanik

I founded Facilitation Support. I am a facilitator, trainer and social researcher based in Warsaw, Poland. I specialize in designing and conducting facilitations and participation processes. I cooperate closely with groups and create space for a good conversation. In my work, I use workshop methods that match the group and tools such as specially designed discussion games. I design and conduct social research, including participation research. I work in Polish and in English.

I graduated from the Institute of Sociology of the University of Warsaw (Master’s degree within MISH College). I am a certified facilitator of dialogue of Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue and a certified STOP trainer (2nd degree Training Quality certificate). Among others, I graduated from Facilitation Training School by STOP, trainers’ course in inclusive facilitation, interpersonal training by Halina Nałęcz-Nieniewska, Intensive basic & advanced dialogue trainings (Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue), Lewis Deep Democracy training (Level 1 & 2).

I specialize in talking about complex matters in a simple way. I (co)created popular guidebooks on conducting social research: Przepis na diagnozę, czyli poznaj młodych i środowisko lokalne (A recipe for diagnosis – get to know young people and the local environment), Quo vadis? O partycypacyjnej diagnozie lokalnej (Quo vadis? About participatory local diagnosis).

I am one of the founders of the Pole Dialogu Foundation and for many years I was a member of the board of this foundation.

 

Cooperating on a permanent basis

psychologist and sociologist, graduate of Facilitation and Intervention in Crisis Situations at the Institute of Applied Social Sciences of the University of Warsaw and the Mediation Clinic of the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Warsaw. For 6 years he has worked conducting social research, facilitating participation and strategic processes, and mediation. He is especially interested in working with activist groups that condemn social injustice. The core of most of his professional work is finding a common ground during meetings and showing how much persons who seem to have opposing views have in common. His professional experience includes, among others, working in a team that dealt with internal dialogue at the Warsaw University, there he facilitated meetings concerning strategic and participation processes, e.g. regarding new investments.

Marianna Wybieralska

designer. She designs visual communication. Translating complex content or processes into understandable and orderly messages is what satisfies her the most. She believes that good design, built upon an accurate diagnosis of needs, can efficiently support social activities, engage people, strengthen processes, and navigate through complex issues. She mostly does design for social organizations (among others: Greenpeace Poland, Love Does Not Exclude, Feminist Fund). She participated in the works on the strategy of introducing marriage equality in Poland for Love Does Not Exclude Association and created its visual form, which facilitates communicating it within the organization’s team and in its surroundings.

In Facilitation Support, she is responsible for:
• creating additional workshop materials, maps of strategic goals,
• composition of final documents in order to make them as efficient as possible,
• designing tools that facilitate discussion difficult subjects: discussion games. She designs both the mechanics of the game, the players’ experience, and the visual layer (examples: “Miasto w Dialogu” for the Capital City of Warsaw, Polska Przyjazna Pszczołom for Greenpeace Poland, Remiks Energetyczny for Civic Climate Summit).
