Training and facilitation

Creating brave spaces to learn

We have over a decade of experience in developing and delivering bespoke training sessions to employees, community groups, volunteers and leaders.

Our person centred, impartial, solutions focused approach draws on real life case studies and encourages the sharing of stories and experiences by participants

Participants will learn strategies to improve workplace culture by covering subjects such as:

  • Understanding and Challenging our Biases in the Workplace

  • Advocating for Transformational Change

  • Inclusive Leadership for managers and team leaders

  • Culturally appropriate care (understanding racial trauma)

  • Diversity Dialogues and Lived Experience

As a result, your staff will respond more effectively to their responsibilities around EDI by deepening their knowledge of the real life impact of discrimination and exclusion on colleagues, service users and customers. We offer remote and face to face sessions for individuals and groups.
