Conscious Inclusion

What happens after you’ve identified your biases?

Awareness of bias is a key critical step in creating an inclusive workplace. This training takes awareness to the next level by equipping participants with the tools to actively eradicate bias.

From affinity bias, and benevolent bias to learning how it can infiltrate a business and impede progress, participants will learn how to identify, explain and correct biases where they may exist.

We will provide participants with practical checkpoints and solutions to actively mitigate bias and we’ll explore what action looks like, discuss its positive impact and provide tools to help participants effect real change.

Inclusive Management

What separates a manager from an inclusive manager? How can being inclusive make a difference to employees, and, the overall success of a business?

Upskilling managers to become active advocates for change is key for inclusion success.

Inclusive management starts with transforming how we’ve come to know leadership, and focusing on the benefits of coaching and sponsorship to shift the age-old perception of what it takes to be a successful manager.

Participants are provided with the tools to reframe and recontextualize the relationship with their employees, learn the value of creating psychologically safe environments and centring inclusion in their approach. This session will focus on upskilling managers to become active advocates for inclusion within their organization.

Let's Talk About Race

How do you approach conversations about race in the workplace?

Can I say that? Is a question many of us have asked when it comes to discussing race in the workplace. Knowing what the correct and most appropriate language to use when discussing race can feel like a minefield, but confident conversations are required for intentional change. Simply put, it’s time to get over our discomfort.

In this training, we work with participants in a safe and non-judgemental space to equip them with the language and cultural nuances to have confident conversations about race in the workplace. Participants will learn about key concepts around race, explaining it’s definition and identifying it’s many forms and will be enabled to drive timely conversations for positive change.

"Really great session, useful to help me as a white colleague understand some of the nuances that were blind spots. The brilliant facilitator did a great job of highlighting the links between the subject of racism and giving examples of how this might look for other minority groups."
