“70% of Millennial employees believe they can make an even greater impact on our world than the leaders who run organisations.”
*Weber Shandwick: Employee Activism in the Age of Purpose
We offer leadership training for changemakers. How do you lead and influence without a budget, mandate or formal team? We train & inspire (young) professionals to use an activist mindset to change their organisations from within.
Through online courses and offline workshops, we coach and embolden employee-led change. People who follow our training feel more constructive, optimistic and confident to lead and use their place of work as a space for change.
No more operating undercover. It’s time for out-in-the-open conversations. Sign up for a course in positive workplace activism.

What is Workplace 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. In fact, you long 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.
From the individual to the collective
CHANGing the business
we're starting with 10 strategies TO support activist leaders to act with confidence and courage.
Change is an ongoing process, not a quick fix. Our approach looks at three areas of development commonly referred to as leading self, leading others and leading the system. Each strategy for change reflects an area of growth that can help you become more effective. You can start your journey today by looking through the strategies page for insights. Discover the power of listening, engaging others through organising principles and learn about the energy hidden in resistance
“ACTIVISM IS LOVE MADE VISIBLE”
Take time to dive deeper into these strategies and build a peer support group. Sign up for an online course where you can practice tools, hone your skills and make and test your plan for action. You will meet other activist leaders and connect to people who are driving change internationally.
