What are AntiRacism Challenges?
Our AntiRacism Challenges use 'gamification' methods to change behaviour through helpful incentives. This approach engages and retains attention, it helps learners learn about challenging things in a safe way, it provides instant feedback and enjoyment, it combines competition with collaboration.
How are they run?
Depending on your budget, it can be run
- in analog form
- on an online portal, or
- as an app
These Challenges are part of our long-term AntiRacism programs that are offered with built-in engagement and motivation.
How do the challenges work?
With AntiRacism, everyone needs to learn to walk before they can run. We take staff on a spaced unlearning and re-learning adventure, using best practice learning steps and resources recommended by antiracism experts around the world. This graded path to change maximises impact and avoids backlash. We too engage in continuous learning and improvement in a rapidly expanding field.
More than being a marketing slogan, our experience shows that people aren't changed by lectures and boring slideshows. They change when they want to change and that's why our programs are lively, engaging experiences designed to evoke self-learning. Lasting cultural change in your organisation takes time and energy.
We undertake a thorough policy and practice review, identifying indirect barriers that can lurk unseen and prevent effective attraction, inclusion, development and retention of diverse talent. We support your organisation's creation of action plans and treaty implementation.
Why should we test?
You want to see the return on your investment. And, because you can only manage what you can measure, we offer pre- and post-testing, using Professor Yin Paradies' validated Reflexive AntiRacism Scale — a proven measuring stick.
Can we train our own staff?
We deliver train-the-trainer versions of workshop segments, so you are fully in control of the ongoing life of the program, but of course, if you need us further, we are available when circumstances or personnel change.
