Talks and workshop

I offer talks and workshops that seek to educate and raise awareness about the issues that affect inclusion and exclusion within the workplace and in wider society. These can be delivered internally to staff or be a part of your external facing work with your stakeholders and the public.

My talks and workshops are challenging but the topics are explored in a manner designed to facilitiate learning and equip organisations and individuals to take actions to create equitably inclusive spaces and interactions.
