Unconscious bias, Diversity and Anti-Racism Training
Our training is delivered with plenty of practical activities and experiential learning which involves active participation and dialogue.
The 3 stage training programme is designed to be in depth and bespoke to your organisation, delivered over a longer period of time, and supporting internal changes.
