Comfortable being Uncomfortable with Race
Get comfortable: innovative, drama-based training to enable open cultural conversations around racism, prejudice and inequality.
In 2020, with the momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement following the killing of George Floyd, many organisations publicly pronounced their commitment to tackling systemic racism. There is much that can be done.
One place to focus efforts is encouraging and supporting employees in having meaningful, open cultural conversations about experiences of racism, prejudice, and inequality. To do this successfully requires everyone involved, especially team leaders and managers, to do their best to bypass the internal defence mechanisms we all have, manage emotions, and, in short, get comfortable being uncomfortable.
Our new training programme uses immersive, drama-based content to facilitate these healthy, collaborative conversations, challenge biases, and encourage participants to push themselves out of their comfort zones in order to build more inclusive working environments.
