The reality is only 1% will commit to being an ally
Many of those who paved the way for change and fought for equal rights alongside Dr Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights movement were white allies.
BUT the majority of people feel scared about saying or doing the wrong thing and causing further offence.
BUT the truth is, this fear paralyses people like you from taking any action and the cycle of inequality continues and silence leads to complicity.
I know you want better race equality and better diversity. And I know you want to actively reduce harm to people in minority groups and you can’t do that by continuing to operate from a place of fear. Your fear and your discomfort will not help to reduce harm and enable equality.
Diversity Matters Online offers two online video courses. The White Privilege and Anti-Racism solely for individual change-makers who want to actively be anti-racist, the other for small business owners who want to learn to better promoting diversity and inclusion in business.
Enrolment for our BETA courses are now available for a limited period of time only before a price increase.
These online video courses have been launched following requests to provide virtual services so you can learn about the power of diversity and anti-racism work in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.
Are you committed?
This work is for those who are committed and those who are ready to prioritise this work on a regular basis even when life gets in the way.
Most people don’t.
Committing to diversity and anti-racism work takes investment and consistency, it takes a certain type of person to want to engage in this work. It is not for the faint-hearted, but the changes you experience will be powerful and long-lasting.
Are you REALLY committed?
This biggest barrier to better inclusion is inaction.
Life getting in the way.
Most people talk about wanting to do this work. But life gets in the way and they get stuck in hold habits.
They remain comfortable and the work doesn’t get done.
The truth is, inaction causes harm.
This work will absolutely stretch you.
It will make you feel uncomfortable.
But transformation and long-lasting change doesn’t happen when we remain complicit and in our comfort zones.
If you are ready to feel uncomfortable. To be the powerful 1%. Ready to be challenged, to step up and lead by example, then read on to find out more about how to make some powerful and important changes.

COURSE TWO – DIVERSITY IN BUSINESS
So many businesses are getting diversity wrong and it is having a negative impact on sales and brand credibility. Now has never been a more appropriate time to be committed to diversity and inclusion. When society is fragmented, not only does this have a direct impact on business and the economy, but also on the human experience.
In this online course, we will take a holistic look to explore diversity matters in business, society and beyond.
Content will include:
Diverse societies produce more and businesses are 35% more likely to be outperformed and outsold by peers if their businesses are not diverse.
Diversity what it is, why it matters in business and society
Equalities and equity act and better understanding and supporting people in minority identities
Understanding subconscious bias
Understanding tokenism and how to avoid it
Understanding cultural appropriation
How to overcome common challenges and enable diversity and equality.
During this course will sensitively explore memes around race and stereotypes, tokenism and cultural appropriation. We will also explore and uncover our own bias, to better understand how it affects how we communicate, how others view us, how we do business and even how we parent. We will also explore political correctness gone mad, language, diversity in society and more.
Avoid being one of the growing number of businesses who are getting it wrong and having a negative impact on brand credibility and sales.
By the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of the intersectionality and power of diversity and how it impacts business, society and even parenting choices and relationships. You will know what language to use, more about your own bias and how to confront it and how others perceive you. You will know how to immediately and confidently improve brand diversity, better communicate with, market to and represent people in minority groups and how to start to enable equality. The course can be completed in as little as 6 weeks and is available for 6 months from sign-up.
