About this event

Really? - On The Edge with Diversity

How intentional are you in your personal, professional or practice development in relation to your own understanding and insights into diversity? And the impact of it, on you and others?

How competently do you then move that active reflection through to reflective actions – doing something differently?

How confident are you that you know how to hold yourself and others around the impact of diversity in a room, family, friendship or passing moment without turning away, avoiding, minimising or needing to be right?

Impacts of this nature can range from a softly spoken ‘huh’ to a louder explosion ‘you cannot be serious’ impact depending on an individual’s context and culture.

We want to bring to life this continuum in collaboration, and whatever range of other reactions and responses, to the world of diversity and the intersectionality of different elements and unconscious biases – those that are obvious and those that are beyond the obvious. We’d love some ‘duh!’ moments alongside our ‘really?’ ones…..

Our ‘Why?’

To set up a psychologically safe and actively inclusive space to facilitate conversations about diversity in relationship to ‘Really? lived experiences’ and move away from fragility, the fear of getting ‘it’ or doing ‘it’ wrong, into real conversations supported by courage and compassion.

Our ‘How?’

To co-create with those who take part, a community of diverse people to come together on a monthly basis, to share stories and reflect on the impact of that story.

Some that spring to mind include:

  • The boy, the bike and the bell
  • Boy racers
  • The handbag
  • The assistant
  • Not you!
  • Good enough

Our ‘What’?

We offer a personal development experience rather than ‘training about the right way’. For us there is a level of confidence in a certainty of intention, based on deep self-awareness of our ‘warts and all’ biases, that drives insightful interventions around difference – equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging – in service of managing of our impact.

Our hope is to be enablers of transformational conversations that bring to life the complexity of this topic for all taking part through:

  • A collaborative, courageous, and compassionate deliberation as a community of equals with an affinity to ‘lean-in’ to this topic from a whole-self perspective.
  • Sharing personal and community insights that bring this complex area to life in a non-threatening way.

We ask that you show up with curiosity to energise, engage with, and enhance your, and others’, confidence in this space.
