We partner with organisations who can demonstrate a commitment to addressing systemic racism and creating alternative models for human centred practices.
Our methodology has five cycles which are iterative and adaptive – meaning that there is no linear route and each partnership has it’s own bespoke journey.
We run parallel journeys for colleagues who identify as white and colleagues who identify as Black and in the Global Majority because there is different work to be done.
We always begin in Cycle ONE: GROUNDING, which involves listening to the testimonies of Black and Global Majority colleagues. This allows us to:
- Root everything we do in the knowledge that racism lives ‘here, in this institution’ not ‘over there, somewhere that we don’t have to deal with’
- Develop actions in response to the current lived experience of racism e.g. an equity pay review
- Adapt our training modules for white colleagues with anonymous examples of harm caused within the institution.
Our specialism is anti-Blackness which is always our starting point however, the intersectionality within our team enables us to respond to specific areas of racism and discrimination as they surface.
Working With Us
We are halfway through a 2 year partnership with the BFI and have decided that we will not be working with any other organisation for the time being. We have reached a point in our journey where we enjoy the power of no, just as much as we enjoy the abundant power of yes.
