The technical term for a pack of pachyderms is a parade. Black Elephant parades are the building blocks of the Black Elephant network. They happen in groups of 9-10 people.
In-person Black Elephant parades allow members to engage with improbable people from their own backyard. They last 2 hours.
Virtual BE parades allow members to engage with improbable people from all over the world. They last 90 minutes.
As guests are invited to participate, they receive a set of questions to think about ahead of the parade. These questions prompt participants to open up and share difficult or intimate experiences. Guests answer these questions one after the other, generating an atmosphere of active listening and empathy.
