Ashanti Bentil Dhue is the Co Founder of 100 White Allies, Diversity Ally and Black In Events, consultancies which provide support to organisations who want to be proactively anti-racist and inclusive, both internally and for their service users. Ashanti believes that systemic change comes from taking a considered, blended approach which brings rigour to programme design, accountability to the change process, balanced lived experience, and dynamic and innovative approaches to learning. More importantly, Ashanti focuses on working with organisations on how they prepare employees and leadership for uncomfortable conversations, before they receive any training and education.
