Our innate instinct to show compassion when we see others in distress or difficulty is an important part of what makes us human. At the same time, it is also humanly possible to be selective with our compassion resulting in inequitable treatment and outcomes. This can be due to a range of different factors, and during these workshops we explore, what can impede compassion and also ways to expand our innate compassion to contribute to building inclusive mindsets, practices and cultures. Learning how simple everyday changes can make a real difference.    

Compassionate People – collective wellbeing and allyship 

This workshop provides those attending an opportunity to better understand the roots of direct, indirect and systemic racism and other forms of discrimination and how to relate this within their personal and working lives. It will also cover simple and practical ways to support others and build inclusive practices that ultimately positively impact on everyone’s wellbeing.
