A key aspect of our 10 Actions for Change is to deliver anti-racism training across our firm, and given the importance of improving education and awareness for the culture of our firm, we went through a really thorough process to secure a provider for those sessions. Inner Ambitions were incredible from the start. They met our brief perfectly, and came with the energy and expertise to deliver sessions that we felt confident would have the impact we needed.
The Anti-Racism sessions have been met with overwhelmingly positive feedback; we frequently hear that it’s the most powerful and impactful session our people have attended to date. Lanre’s facilitation really is exceptional, without fail he delivers each session with unwavering energy and passion, his style is inclusive yet direct and challenging and he has generated a great level of discussion and understanding across the firm.
The sessions are hard hitting and impactful, whilst being able to invite conversation from people of a range of levels of awareness on the topic of race and inclusion, and have appealed to our most junior colleagues, right through to the firm’s senior leadership.
We’ve now been formally working together for eight months, and Lanre’s ongoing support and guidance has been exceptional. Lanre has supported us to engage with facilitators across regions, to enable us to deliver the training to other offices in Europe in the office’s local languages; which has been incredibly well received.
