from our participants

our training and communities of practice transform the way organisations do diversity and inclusion work

Before today’s session I felt like I had been swimming/drowning in fear of doing the relational work when faced with resistance/backlash within and across our circles… Leaving the session I’m feeling so nourished, energised, and connected. Thank you for facilitating the space for us all to process the traumas that exist in doing this work, and remind us of the community, solidarity, and transformative change that continues to take place
Hannah Dwyer


The training was brilliant in acknowledging that in some way we are all targets to discrimination & agents and explored how to apply equity to our work and workplaces.

The training promoted discussion and left me with goals on how to further improve/develop my delivery of care in work & personal life. I have & will continue recommending this training to any colleagues who have not had an opportunity to attend.

intertwine’s messaging training gave me a much deeper understanding of how to change hearts and minds, and instil in people a sense of their own power, agency and belonging to a movement.

Months later, I still refer back to some of the tools! I’m also grateful to the team for their efforts to create a learning space that felt more accessible and psychologically safer than others I’ve been in.
