Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training

An immersive 6 week course to Explore, Equip and Educate.

Forging professional and emotional relationships in order to create an environment congruent with trust and transparency.

Monitoring outcomes and implementing policies to ensure the development of the core DE&I plan is recognised and adhered to in all aspects of the business.

Personal safety and development with the intention to address the cultural competency, diversity, bias and inclusion to enhance the service offering by working with the individuals in and around the organisation. Your people are your business.

Through team sessions we will gather group opinions and general queries. This will also be used to decompress and assert team values and boost moral. This work is emotive and triggering, we need to ensure the team stands united and accepting of each others individual journey of growth.

The objective is to do so without projecting blame or fear and equally without inciting privilege and power over others.

With an in depth knowledge and passion for birth work, perinatal mental health and the the desire to "make birth better" for all, supporting your advancements through DE&I is something not to be taken lightly. I will work with you to develop a plan where we not only provide 1-1 consultation, support, education, advocacy and growth but work to ensure structural change that can impact service users, external partners and organisations that you and your organisation align themselves with providing a real catalyst for positive change.

The option for additional 1-1s will be an opportunity for raw honest and confidential personal development. These will look different from person to person and will be recorded in order to reflect, assess and gain insight into each individual, the impact of their personal beliefs and experiences and the influence this has on their role within your organisation.
