Learn from You Change It, our anti-racism allyship programme.

As a ground breaking charity founded and run by diverse people, You Make It has been expertly delivering equalities work on the ground for years. Their insight and experience make them extremely well placed to help reshape how companies can become allies in the fight for inclusion.

Our approach to anti-racism

More than ever before there is a strong drive for people to stand up against racism in recognition of the Black Lives Matter movement and realise their agency to make changes personally and professionally. However the act of allyship comes with a lot of learning and introspection, which can be emotionally challenging and complicated to navigate on your own. 

You Change It is our anti-racism allyship programme with a human-centred approach; it allows you to learn about and solidify your values to stand up against racism in practical ways with your colleagues.

It's changed the language we use from fear and negativity and how not to do the wrong thing, to how we can positively do the right thing! This has been such a positive move in how we can talk about race.
