8-week online interactive course.
For anyone seeking an anti-racist stance.
Show up to your equality values.
Learn in a safe and non-judgmental space.
Replace fear with curiosity.
As a non-black person, you feel uncertain about what do right now.
Whatever your skin colour, knowing how to talk about race can be a challenge. You know it's important to talk but you feel scared of saying or doing the wrong thing. You might not know what to say. You may lack the confidence to speak out. You're feeling uncomfortable with what your privilege might mean for you.
You have the energy to act but do not know how to best direct it.
You may have the resources and are starting to educate yourself but are left questioning 'Then what?' You may be well educated but are struggling to know what you can actually do differently to make the change you want to see. You may be in a position to lead solutions but are unsure how to avoid them not having the impact they need to this time.
You know that the workplace needs to be a leader of change.
Deep down you know this is more than a diversity representation issue, although that's important too. You know that questions need to be asked, uncomfortable realities faced and new ways practised. You want to play a role to do that so that you can make a lasting impact.

Your course leader
I'm Letesia. I'm mixed race. My father is a mix of Black Jamaican and White British. My mother's family are White British. I'm proud of my heritage.
I believe that we all play a role in creating and leading the change we want to see in our workplaces. We need to do better to create cultures of true belonging. I believe that self-awareness, genuine curiosity and great courage are the cornerstone skills for role modelling change. With this trio, we can begin to promote anti-racist behaviour, step into true equality and become the equality role models we know we can be.
As a coach, consultant and wellbeing expert I work with individuals and teams to create real change in their work lives and workplaces. I understand how culture works, how it keeps unhelpful beliefs and behaviours alive and how we can adjust it to create lasting change. I work with courage, compassion and care to help people show up as better versions of themselves.
