Training

The modern workforce is multigenerational, diverse and is held together by employees working in varied formats such as inperson, remote and hybrid. To remain competitive, relevant, and inclusive, organizations need to be digitally equipped and provide teams with ongoing educational solutions to reinforce their working culture and offer valuable insights. We deliver our expertise across various channels to meet the needs of our partners.

In-Person Training

We have delivered onsite training and presentations to government departments, political parties, multinational companies, not-for-profits, and community groups.

From our experience, we believe that in-person communications are powerful for deep-dive information exchange, and facilitating difficult conversations and shared learning experiences.

Live Virtual Training

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of virtual events and meetings. We utilize technology to enhance the accessibility of our training solutions.

Through this channel, we can offer benefits such as cross-team collaboration, instant feedback, and flexibility. Virtual sessions can also be recorded and accessed later for those who cannot attend live sessions.

Online Training

We believe that training materials should be easily accessible and stimulating. Through online and on-demand channels, clients can access modular training comprising of videos, materials, and digital experiences.

Utilizing an on-demand training approach allows companies to track their training investment, educate their workforce at scale, and set up onboarding structures.

Human Rights Education

Human rights are fundamental rights and freedoms that belong to all individuals. These rights must be protected.

Leaders of progressive organizations seek collaboration and input from colleagues when making decisions and problem solving. This style of leadership encourages different perspectives.

Women in Leadership

The voices of women, particularly minority women, have been absent from the decision-making table. Research has shown that having at least one-third female decision-makers has a powerful positive outcome. Through empowering and action-focused training content, we empower and support female leaders in the corporate environment.

Microaggressions

Offhand comments, jokes and unintentional insults can make people feel that they are not accepted or trusted in the workplace. Despite being subtle, a microaggression is a form of prejudice and should be addressed in the workplace. The purpose of this training session is to raise awareness about the subtle but serious impact of microaggressions.

Neurodiversity

Creating awareness and provisions for neurodiversity in the workplace allows for each person's strengths to be maximized and their working needs to be supported. Without neurodiversity-friendly provisions, there is a risk of exclusion and not getting the most of staff. Through first-person voices, academic studies, and business case studies, we offer training to raise awareness about neurodiversity and support organizations to adapt to the needs of neurodivergent staff.
