Fearless Futures serves fearless organisations – across sectors – ready to actively challenge inequities by addressing their roots, intersections, and lived realities. We do this as an ambitious group of multi-disciplinary specialists by facilitating transformative, experiential equity and inclusion education and partnering with our clients through consultancy to re-design their policies and processes to operationalise equitable ecosystems for their people and products.
Who are we looking for?
We’re looking for experienced, engaging and highly-effective anti-oppression freelance/contractor facilitators.
What will you be doing as a freelance facilitator?
Our facilitators who deliver workshops for senior leaders in companies are responsible for engagingly, impactfully and professionally delivering highly discursive and experiential organisational training. Additionally, organisational facilitators are also responsible for certain administrative, preparatory and logistical tasks relating to the successful running of an organisational workshop/programme. This delivery could be a one-off 2 hour workshop or 3 consecutive days of unique and bespoke Fearless Futures content. As this is a freelance role, there is no promise of placement and is contingent on business and availability.
Where will you be facilitating bespoke Fearless Futures content?
Our programmes take place in New York City, virtually in online workshops and elsewhere in the USA.
