Our Sessions

We firmly believe in tailoring training to your individual organisations as we do not believe that one size fits all and that different people receive messages in different ways. Our training is very reflective and is about shifting hearts and minds. We can combine units to suit the needs of your organisation. All packages include consultancy to identify your needs and course content requirements plus suggested pre-reading/listening in the lead up to the session. Sessions can last from 1 hour to a full day. We can deliver either face-to-face or online. We can deliver one off sessions but as research and our experience shows, ongoing training is most effective in anti-racism work. Our sessions always have at least two trainers, with the possibility with more live experience facilitators.

Our Aims

  • To create a safe space for people to share their thoughts, experiences and ideas without worrying about being judged or demonised for saying the wrong thing.

  • To enable attendees to navigate tricky terminology and to get over the fear of making mistakes.

  • To encourage participants to reflect on both their unconscious and conscious biases and discuss ways of navigating them. We talk about walking towards the biases we all have rather than trying to eradicate them.

  • To address issues of social inequality and diversity within communities and organisations.

  • To explain that having good intentions is not enough.

  • To explain the importance of putting the need to be an active anti-racist in front of your own discomfort.

  • To support people in getting uncomfortable before they get comfortable in order to be an active anti-racist.

  • To convey the importance of diversity data and what to do with it.

  • To encourage attendees to think about where they get their information about minorities (Migrants, Muslims, Asylum Seekers etc.) and to question the sources.
