I facilitate transformative workshops, host and moderate panels and provide key note speeches for corporates, universities, schools and non-governmental organisations.
I have been trained in various coaching and facilitation methodologies to facilitate difficult conversations on race, class and gender, including Digital Storytelling, Gender Reconciliation, Open Design, Constellations, Time to Think and Design Thinking.
My work takes place both offline and online, where I am a community administrator for an online group that helps participants discuss how to deal with racism and its impact in our daily lives.
I have been working on long term diversity and social justice interventions at Roedean Schools, Hershel Schools, and Westerford Schools. The interventions have focused on all stakeholders including learners, parents, teachers, support staff and school management.
Some of the interventions include conducting parent and teacher racial literacy training, digital storytelling workshops and a diversity curriculum for Grade 3 – 7 learners at Roedean Schools. I have also run ad hoc workshops and done talks and other short term interventions for other schools including Micklefield, Auckland Park Preparatory School and St Cyprians Schools.
I have also been part of mediation and crisis management efforts at various schools, following the outbreak of a racist incident.
I have provided key note speeches and run diversity workshops focusing on race, gender and other issues for various corporate clients including Norton Rose, Ipsos, Royal Haskoning DVH, British High Commission to South Africa and many others.
I have worked as an academic at University of Witwatersrand (Wits) and Cape Peninsula University (CPUT). Through my work as an academic involved in curriculum development for social justice, I started running facilitated diversity workshops post #FeesMustFall at various Universities in South Africa.
I have spoken to medical post grad students and student residence leadership at Stellenbosch and run digital storytelling workshops, the priviledge walk exercise and world café sessions for students and learners in various departments and units at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) including marketing and architecture.
In terms of university organisational development and transformation strategy development work, I have completed a long term transformation process with the University of Cape Town’s Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching unit. I have also worked with the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Team at the Bertha Centre of UCT as well as the Decentering Whiteness project of UCT. Interventions conducted included running transformation strategy development, institutional power mapping, culture surveys, facilitating team sessions and providing Leading Diversity coaching sessions with managers.
I have also run a Co-creating curricula across Difference course via Cape Higher Education Consortium (CHEC) with fellow academics that focused on how to work across with different partners from students, communities and other social justice partners in curriculum development.
I have facilitated conversations with various non governmental organisations and ran an #endxenophobia campaign with the Adonis Musati Project.
