“70% of Millennial employees believe they can make an even greater impact on our world than the leaders who run organisations.”

We are a learning hub for employee-led change. We embolden professionals to confidently organise and take positive action around climate change and social justice in their workplaces.

What is EMPLOYEE Activism?

Young leaders today long to drive real change. You no longer tolerate social inequities and environmental degradation as a result of business-as-usual and want to be part of the solution. You are the impact generation. A growing generation sparked by an activist mindset. Organizing is happening in private, in schools and on the streets. Your workplace is only the next step.

The purpose of workplace activism is to make the workplace a place for positive change. A place that supports actions that are transparent in their aims and serve the agenda of uplifting the collective, reducing inequalities and respecting and regenerating the planet. ​

We facilitate conversations and constructive dialogue between senior management and employees. We help to bridge the divide in organisations. Make companies more ambitious and accelerate positive change.

Our Podcast on Employee Activism 

With many businesses confused about what ‘doing good’ means, employees are stepping up and pressuring their organisations to act on behalf of an interest greater than their company’s profits. 


In a two-part podcast, Tessa Wernink co-founder of the Undercover Activist and Kwame Ferreira, founder of Impossible get together to explore what innovators and activists have in common. Listen to a range of activists and experts who are challenging current norms and speaking up in the face of questionable leadership. Their resistance to the current system is a first step to believing we can be part of change when we bring our values and action to the workplace.


Available on all podcast players.
