Michelle has curated a series of interactive masterclasses to enable all employees to put equality into practice and embed diversity, equity and inclusion into every aspect of working life.

Our learning series provides interactive virtual or in person bitesize learning modules to enable employees to advance their knowledge of foundational diversity and inclusion topics, understand how this shows up in their workplace and importantly how to take action every day to build a workplace that works for everyone.  Transforming the behaviours, norms, and cultures in a team begins with ensuring employees are paying attention to the inequality moments that happen and taking action to manage them. As employees take action, they will begin to understand how making workplaces more inclusive and equal, serves to benefit them. This is equality in action.

Our Theory of Change: From Awareness To Action

Creating a culture of equality is not a ‘nice to have’, it is a fundamental business imperative. The number one barrier to advancing diversity and inclusion is the denial of inequality at work, which is the belief that workplaces work for everyone in the same way.

When employees believe workplaces work for everyone in the same way, because everyone is the same, they deny difference and different experiences of working life. Companies cannot simply launch off-the-shelf solutions and expect results. Instead, they need to treat inclusion like any other business priority by engaging men and women to own the solution.

Based on nearly two decades of research, our development programmes are based on the following theory of change:

Awareness

Employees need to disrupt their denial about difference, and different experiences of working life, by creating awareness of how inequality reveals itself in their organisation.
