The landscape of leaders & businesses taking responsibility has shifted - drastically.

BE AUTHENTIC.

BE INTENTIONAL.

RE-IMAGINE.

THIS ISN'T BUSINESS AS USUAL ANYMORE.

Companies are being called-out & called-in for their DEI practices (or lack thereof).

YES.

You need to be agile.

The anti-oppressive initiatives you've tried to don't feel like enough (or sustainable).

yes.

You need to be creative.

It feels like a loop of repeat challenges making it hard to strategize for the future.

yes.

You need support.

Create change through personal growth...

...feel confident, navigate challenges with possibility and curiosity...

you are on a mission to empower your community!

IT TAKES WILLINGNESS TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY...

The uncomfortable truth is that I have been that old school cringe leader.

I did harm.


20 years in the hospitality industry - most of it spent in management - and I had no idea about inclusion so I followed what I thought was needed to succeed.


I competed against other women and perpetuated sexist ideals. I viewed team members through a classist lens. I laughed at inappropriate jokes and comments because I was uncomfortable and didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. I regularly acted out of my unconscious biases.


And when I started to see the world through a lens of inclusion. Oh my, did it stings to sit with my thoughts and review my actions.


So I had to heal. To forgive myself.


And then I began to research and learn more about how to change my habits and lead with intentionality so I could carry the work forward.

INTRODUCING...

Anti-Oppression Leadership Academy.


What leaders say and do makes up to a 70% difference as to whether an individual reports they feel included and that they belong.


Which matters because the more people feel included, the more they speak up, participate, and collaborate — which ultimately boosts overall company performance.


The Academy is a 22-week program that guides you through the work of understanding anti-oppression so you can transform the way you lead.


INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP

IS THE FUTURE

'THE COURSE WORK'

DIVIDED INTO 4 PILLARS.

01

01

Self-Work to the FRONT

Develop your framework for unlearning & relearning through supported teaching, resources and healthy group discussion. Find yourself inside the topic of supremacy culture, connect with the internalized experience we are all healing from and the importance of intersectionality when developing anti-oppressive values and strategy. This is where you build the foundations of belonging.

02.

The Marginalized Experience & Intentional Leadership

Find your voice and use it for transformative change. But first - pump the brakes - and try to understand the lived experience of those you seek to lead. The aim is not to ‘be everything to everyone’ - that concept is harmful in the way it overly smoothes the edges of intersectional identities. Through case studies, guest speakers and community discussions - this area will further develop your personal growth and leadership style.

03.

Leadership Styles & Belonging in the Workplace

Ultimately, the work you do inside The Academy will combine several leadership styles into your own unique and dynamic inclusive leadership version. The goal is to craft a style around your needs and the community you serve. Learn what is needed to lead diverse groups through the highs and lows of daily operations. This foundation will stabilize the ongoing work you do long after graduation from The Academy.

04.

Build Your Anti-Oppression & Accountability Strategy

Guessing lacks accountability. So does riding by the seat of your pants HOPING it all comes together. Here you'll learn to bring everything together into long-range goals and planning with the intention of completing the program with a roadmap for your leadership career and/or business. Working with inclusive marketing strategies. reparations partnerships, brand identity, social media image, vendor/stakeholder processes and more! This part is custom to you - supported by The Academy to make it all come together.

YOU READY

FOR THIS?

Incredible Experts and Facilitators

The Academy is not a solo experience — you'll have a team of incredible experts and facilitators—walking every step of the way with you, holding you as fully capable to take every next step as you move deeper into the work and evolve.

Identify Oppressive Systems

Most problematic behavior (and the harm it causes) happens without you ever knowing. It’s in the subtle knowledge gaps and unconscious bias that you and your team/clients/customer possess.


The thing is, marginalized folx have been mistreated for so long that we often don’t speak up since we know how that can backfire against us. By understanding oppressive frameworks, you’ll begin to see warning signs before you lose clients, customers and team members.

Create Inclusive Environments

Only you know your people. So the work of co-creating safe space requires a deep level of knowing who is in the room and what you need to meet them and support the collective in an authentic and sustainable way. It’s not about ‘being everything to everyone’ - far from it actually - this is a nuanced zone and an ever changing space for your personal growth.
