Our approach is different & it works
We Are Fearless
Whether igniting our transformative learning journey or collaborating closely in our consultancy, Fearless Futures stands boldly, analysing the roots of inequities unapologetically. This unwavering stance fuels our partnerships with daring companies globally.
Whether we are delivering our transformative learning experience or working with you in our consultancy capacity we are FEARLESS and unapologetic in our analysis of the root causes of inequities. It’s why we work with daring companies.
This focus on the ways systems of inequities produce unequal and harmful outcomes for marginalised groups, can be uncomfortable for some. Many organisations prefer to avoid this – whether in their choice of training or in their analysisof how their policies and processes perpetuate these outcomes. It’s why so much effort that goes into ‘inclusion’ often fails.
Rooted in technical acumen, our approach dissects inequities and oppression. We decipher origins, unveil organisational impacts, and meticulously design inclusive ecosystems for people, policy, and product.
Our approach is rooted in precise, technical and robust understandings of inequities and oppression: where they come from, how they show up in and shape organisations, and crucially how we can recalibrate and design inclusion and equity into the fabric of workplace ecosystems, both for people, policy and product.
Our Approach is Intersectional
Guided by Kimberlé Crenshaw’s groundbreaking framework, we decode multifaceted oppressions. From sexism to racism, our approach honours overlapping inequities, fostering holistic solutions driving real change.
The analytical framework that seeks to problem-solve at the intersection is called ‘intersectionality’, a term coined by Black feminist and legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989, though theorised for centuries before her. This collective theorising centres Black Women.
Crenshaw and other Black feminists’ gift has been that this framework is now used across inequities. In our work, we use this analytical framework as we explore sexism, racisms, colonialism, Islamophobia, cissexism, heterosexism, disablism, antisemitism and classism.
Our clients consistently find this commitment in our approach important, because it is rooted in recognisable social realities that honour the ways inequities overlap to produce particularistic outcomes for those who live at the intersections.
Whether in our training or consultancy, we centre this analysis and provide our clients with ways to incorporate this into their personal practice through training or into analyses that shapes policy, process and product re-design in service of equity.

Annually, we channel a portion of our surplus to organisations that champion those on society’s margins. This practice of “solidarity redistribution” underscores our shared commitment to confronting oppression and injustice head-on, bypassing traditional charity norms.
Over the past three years, we’ve proudly directed more than £200,000 to support the following organisations:
Each year we re-distribute a portion of our surplus to organisations working to serve people on society’s margins which are also often organisations on the margins of philanthropic and funding interests. We specifically name this as a solidarity redistribution instead of charity to acknowledge our shared commitments to challenging oppression, domination and injustice.
Over the last three years we are proud to have distributed over £200,000 equivalent to the following organisations:
