ARE training is designed and led by experienced facilitators using engaging, thought-provoking techniques to engender a process of behavioural change. The session will be participatory and have a combination of trainer/facilitator input, group discussions and group exercises and will ensure that the environment is comfortable, safe and respects confidentiality and differing views.
We believe training or workshops are a small part of a wider approach or strategy aiming to make systemic change and embed EDI as a core thread throughout the organisation. We also appreciate and recognise that participants will have diverse learning styles for which we ensure a range of engagement techniques are used including handouts, quiz, video, discussion, exercises and reading lists to take away. Our workshops can be delivered online or in-person.
Support after course completion
We always offer a follow up support option for all participants via email. In the past this has ranged from participants seeking clarity, discussing a component in more depth, sourcing resources and connections and sharing personal experiences.
ARE develop training content and resources to ensure staff are respected and valued and feel confident and knowledgeable about the language, concepts and tools to adopt inclusive behaviours in day-to-day operations.
Importantly, our approach will create a safe space for participants to question and discuss situations, behaviours, language and attitudes that impact inclusion in the workspace as well as tangible and practical tools and frameworks to interrupt negative bias, discrimination and micro-aggressions.
