Programmes & workshops to support you in creating an inclusive culture and growing leaders committed to racial inclusion. There is scope to tailor existing workshops or design new workshops to organisational needs.
IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT RACE
The 2015 Business in the Community survey (BITC 2015) found that people felt more comfortable having conversations around age, gender and sexuality at work. But, only 38% of surveyed participants felt comfortable speaking about race, regardless of ethnicity (BITC 2019; BITC 2015). This highlights a need to facilitate conversations that encourage and empower employees to confidently speak about race, and take steps towards racial inclusivity.
This workshop will provide tools and a safe space to be able to challenge self-perception and the status quo of organisational practices. Furthermore, make a commitment towards building a racially diverse culture. Where all people, including those from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds, can bring their best and whole selves to work.
This three half-day workshop will take your leaders through a journey of :
Understanding the history of racial inequalities.
Develop tools to have conversations about race.
Uncover fears and limitations to having these conversations.
Explore the concept of race, including own racial identity.
Many employees see themselves as allies to women of color—but they aren’t taking enough action.

THE MYTH OF THE ANGRY BLACK WOMAN
Black women are regularly depicted in the media and society, as ‘Angry’, ‘Aggressive’ and ‘Sassy’. Is this true? What is the impact?
Come along and learn about how this stereotype can impact Black women in the workplace and society. It is hoped this will begin the much needed conversation around breaking down and dispelling this inaccurate myth. So Black Women can bring their true and best selves to work and be able to flourish as individuals in society.
This will be a safe space to learn, discuss, and challenge this myth.
This workshop can be delivered as a lunchtime (one hour) or half-day (3 hours) workshop.
When women are well represented at the top, companies are 50 percent more likely to outperform their peers.
