"In most workshops about race and discrimination, I keep my mouth shut for fear of not being PC. Today, I could not stop talking – it was very liberating."
"I have learned that I didn't really know the difference between equity and equality. That my reluctance to engage in conflict can be quite damaging for me and for others, through avoidance of some issues. Thank you for bringing this to my attention."
"The workshop has already informed my awareness and inspired me to enter into conversations with colleagues and friends that I would otherwise been uncomfortable starting."
"It gave me a totally different perspective on the idea of discussing race issues with people of different backgrounds. By creating a safe and non judgemental environment it allowed us to reflect and learn from others and ourselves."
"In spite of Covid-19 restrictions, Mabadiliko CIC were able to reach nearly 70 members of Black African and Caribbean Communities in Lewisham to find out about the barriers and motivators to healthy eating and physical activity. They detailed these discussions in a clear and easy to follow report with tangible recommendations for Lewisham to take forward as part of our recommissioning work."
"The Equality Survey delivered by Mabadiliko CIC helped gives us a clearer, honest picture of how our staff feel. The insights were challenging but we felt supported along way to know what to do next. Mabadiliko has a professional and positive attitude to ensuring a smooth process in undertaking projects."
"We worked with Nadine and Hillna at Mabadiliko to produce two video resources with supplementary documents aimed at building resilience in students aged 13-15, and 18+. We were very pleased to work with Mabadiliko given their expertise and commitment to our shared values, and were pleased with the high-quality outputs they produced as well as the collaboration and mutual learning demonstrated."
"You really feel supported and it’s also nice to give your support to others. We feel like we’re part of a community, we all care about each other, and it just feels so so real. I feel like in this space we can really truly talk about anything."
"When I first joined, I was lacking a lot of confidence, I was quite withdrawn… I felt really into myself. I was actually just reflecting yesterday… wow I’ve actually come so far. I’ve seen a shift within myself and I know it has to do with this group."
“This has been a great impactful session, I’ve learned how to handle microaggressions when they are presented in the workplace... especially as a black person.”
