Anti-racism Training

Our anti-racism training is unique. By role modelling effective dialogue through our own diverse relationship, we help people feel at ease and ready to be vulnerable - the first step towards becoming accountable, seeing the world through an anti-racist lens, and feeling empowered to take positive action.

The Problem

From schools to the justice system and even financial processes like mortgage applications, we are surrounded by structural racism. For many of us it’s invisible. For everyone else it's everywhere – from the national ethnicity awarding gap that sees Black students 18% less likely to leave university with a good degree classification, to the fact that Black women are four times more likely to die in childbirth.

Across society we tend to avoid the difficult conversations that these stark facts should ignite – too many of us are lacking the racial literacy required to broach subjects in an open, inclusive and confident way. This negatively impacts us all, most dramatically those who have lived experience of racism.  

The Solution

Anti-racism training is an invaluable tool in starting those essential conversations and sharing the racial literacy required to call racism out. For many of us this means facing up to privilege and the socialised acceptance of norms that create exclusion – such as the predominance of white skin in health literature giving guidance on rashes. It’s not a comfortable thing to do, but it’s a deeply necessary and cathartic one. Taking people on this journey is what Mokita do best. 

Investing in these approaches has a range of positive benefits for your organisation, from creating closer, more psychologically safe and efficient teams and true diversity of thought, to improving service delivery, opening new markets and improving staff and student retention.

A very insightful training. Elli and Alisha are approachable, knowledgeable and engaging. This will certainly have a positive impact on my practice in the future. This training should be mandatory for anyone working in healthcare!

One-day Racial Injustices Training

Our flagship course is our one-day Racial Injustices Training which we can tailor to the organisational needs of health care and education workplaces.

This workshop covers:

- Education about the history of racism and discrimination within your sector
- Examination of unconscious and implicit biases and stereotyping
- Understanding how power and privilege operates in society
- Strategies for creating inclusive environments
- Development of skills to address racism and bias in oneself and others
By educating individuals and groups on issues related to racism, discrimination, and bias, each training session helps to increase awareness, provide space for reflection and discussion, and ultimately change attitudes and behaviour long term – strengthening your working relationships and your organisation as a whole.
