YOU are a dedicated professional. You want to be part of the solution to combat the interrelated challenges of climate change, inequality and social  injustice. The company you work for is not changing fast enough. You might even feel you are becoming part of the problem and are wondering what you can do differently. 

You have a choice. Either you stay and silence your voice. You leave and try working somewhere else. Or, you try changing your company from within. 

 

We train dedicated professionals to become workplace activists. We see an increasing need for the millennial professional’s voice to be heard and be a stronger force in driving the big transitions needed to build a regenerative economy.

Course content

course conten
  • WEEK 1 - Placing Activism in a Business Context
    In the introductory week, we dive into the meaning and different perceptions of activism over the last century. We will discuss how social movements have changed our societies and how they have influenced business over the years. We discuss how businesses are not democracies, why they resist organising bodies and why activism in business requires attention for safety (in numbers), understanding your privilege and knowing your rights.
  • WEEK 2 - Connecting to Self
    This week takes you on a journey of discovery. What characteristics help activists? Which ones don’t? The story of change always begins with you. Take a moment to understand what drives you and embrace your inner activist. We take first steps to identify recurring patterns in our behaviour and work with what triggers us. How does acknowledging our own resistance help us see it and work with it in others?
  • WEEK 3 - Organising for Collective Action
    Standing for a cause is one thing. Getting people to join you is another skill all together. This week, we get to know a variety of organising strategies. How to connect to others and what to think of when gathering momentum for change.
  • WEEK 4  - Changing the Business
    Change is a process and it can be complex. This week, we take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Who else is part of our ecosystem? We learn how to map these actors and their interests and influence. And we look at existing frameworks for impact that can accelerate your cause.
  • WEEK 5 - From Theory to Action
    Each week, we will use on- and offline tools to practice the new skills. At the beginning of the course, you have identified an area of change within your business and we will use the rest of the module to co-create a plan of action. At the end of module 5, you will have a canvas full of ideas and actionable items.
  • WEEK 6 - Showing up with a Plan
    During the last week of the course it is your turn to write your own plan of action. What are the next steps you want take in order to achieve your goal? What do you still need for this, and how will you get this?
