Black Allyship Program

Thursday 17th October

10am – 2pm

We speak with allies on how they can be more effective in partnering with the Black community to create greater opportunities for the advancement of Black talent. In collaboration with our Diversity and Inclusion coach, we will deliver training to employees and senior management on how to best support Black employees/colleagues, recognise and challenge stereotypes, systematic inequalities and microaggressions in the workplace and create an inclusive work environment where Black employees believe they truly belong.

Who is this for?
We invite all allies who would like to develop, be inspired, and have real, honest and open discussions in an environment that supports learning and growth. Regardless of your race this is a fantastic session for you to attend.
