Allyship is not a bolt on, it is integral to leadership.
This ½ day workshop supports leaders to explore the journey from 'I'm not a racist' to being actively anti-racist. From Bystander to Ally provides clear and tangible changes that leaders can implement personally and then use to support the organisation's cultural transformation.
Leaders have the space to reflect on their learning journey, what they've discovered about themselves and race, what they’ve learnt from others.
They will begin to explore how their new understanding will change thinking, behaviour and decision making. Leaders will identify concrete actions, personally and collectively, for becoming allies.

“What Akin and his team offer is very different to what many experience as part of a leadership development programme. Their focus is on experiential learning rather than typical theory and classroom-based training. AKD have partnered with us to challenge our approach and push the boundaries of our thinking to create and deliver a bespoke, innovative development programme for our leadership team. The results have been truly inspirational and have left a lasting impact on all participants.” Alison Bell, HR Director MTR Elizabeth Line
