We believe that trying to tackle a person’s consciousness or unconsciousness is too complex as it is so deep. There are a multitude of circumstances where a person can say the wrong thing and altering behaviour on a few issues today does not stop you from saying the wrong thing tomorrow. Structured based on lived experience, our workshop approaches inclusion in a unique way.
The main points are:
It struck me how important it is for everyone to have a safe space to discuss issues – to help build understanding and confidence. The real stories from the young people in contrast to Bob’s slightly more historical picture were disturbing and poignant. I enjoyed the sessions and am relieved that Bob “has got our backs”. He brings a level headed and human approach to inclusion which is sadly not always the case with everyone.
Thank you MAMA Youth. - Bella Lambourne, HR and Operations Director at Banijay
With the above points in mind, delegates leave the workshop in a more positive mood, and the worry of saying the wrong thing will no longer be a predominant issue. The workshop can be tailored to cover specific topics like ethnicity, gender equality, disability, and the delivery can be adapted accordingly. There is a bespoke workshop for executive level, senior management and perhaps most importantly, management/supervisors and senior members of staff.
The workshop will be delivered across maximum 2 weeks with flexibility for the following sessions:
I thought the workshop was brilliant, Bob spoke passionately and honestly about his experiences in the TV world (and outside). The alumni spoke confidently and candidly and it was great to hear things from their view point.It was really useful to help focus the mind on what we should be focusing on, and how we all need to take responsibility for changing the TV world for the better.
Really looking forward to working with you - Natalie Heustice, Productions Executive at RDF Television
The MAMA Youth Inclusion Workshop was authentic, thought-provoking and digestible. Bob’s style of educating allows you to be entirely open, without fear of saying the wrong thing. That gives the group the freedom to actually learn. Hearing first hand from MYP alumni about their experiences of being black within the work place was a challenging but extremely valuable discussion. It pushes you to reflect and recognise where discrimination occurs on a daily basis . I would describe the workshop as powerful. - Rebecca Light, Senior Manager of Content Services Quality Control & Assurance at Sky
