Everyone should have the opportunity to do what they love, to be employed and fully supported. I am choosing to support my community. I’m choosing to fight for other people who look like me in a way that I never fought for myself.

TESTIMONIALS

Shereen came to Adaptive to provide a keynote session on race and equality, as part of our Diversity & Inclusion event.

Shereen is a charismatic and engaging speaker, with a clear in depth knowledge about race and racism, and was able to help provide knowledge about some of the uncomfortable truths around racism in the workplace and society.

Her talk was thought-provoking, educational and enlightening at the same time, and sparked some really interesting Q&A discussions. Thank you Shereen!

MATT BARRET

CEO, Adaptive Financial Consulting

Our organization held the very first Week Against Racial Discrimination. Our overall goal was to enable the conversation about race equity in the workplace, including raising awareness and educate, furthermore creating a safe space for sharing experiences. With this effort, we wanted to take another step towards our vision: a diverse and inclusive work environment, where everyone is respected, valued, and feels that they belong.

Shereen delivered the keynote speech for this project. Her approach, based on empathy, authenticity, and radical honesty was extremely effective. Through her personal story and expertise, Shereen had a large impact on our employees. She sparked curiosity, inspired, and initiated difficult conversations. She made it easier for people to understand the concept and importance of being anti-racist.

Throughout our entire engagement, Shereen exceeded our expectations by being proactive and supportive at every step of the way. It was a true pleasure to work with Shereen and I highly recommend HR rewired’s service to any organization that wants to work on Race Equity and anti-racism education. Thank you, Shereen!

In order to become a more inclusive sport, it is really important that our senior leaders have a good understanding of racism and what it means to be anti-racist. When I first spoke to Shereen, her knowledge alongside a relaxed and understanding but straight-talking manner, was exactly what we were looking for. By increasing our knowledge in this area, we are now in a much better position to create positive action that will drive real change.

ROSE GRISSELL

Head of Diversity and Inclusion

Shereen provided a safe environment for an open and honest discussion about race and racism in our industry, and society broadly, in a non-confrontational way, bringing real lived experience that was relatable. The group of leading Executives and Chairs from across the industry were engaged and eager to contribute thoughts and ask questions. Shereen was, in one participant’s words, ‘just brilliant’. She remained unphased and non-judgemental and it was an excellent opportunity to open the conversation on race and what each person’s responsibility is in addressing the current situation. Her continued involvement and support is helping us to shape our actions and accelerate change.

We have heard great feedback about HR rewired and we were delighted when Shereen joined our D&I Network’s meeting. Shereen has approached this engagement with a lot of attention and care, asking questions and agreeing topics and agenda in advance. 

This meeting included our D&I Ambassadors, as well as senior leaders from the business who wanted to learn about racial equity and anti-discrimination, but also understand what they can do to make a difference.

Shereen’s talk was very well structured with time for a speech and Q&A for the audience – it felt very open and interactive, our team was able to ask questions, advice and share opinions. 

The feedback we received was that everyone found Shereen’s talk “eye-opening”, “positively challenging” and “inspiring and impactful”.Shereen’s talk became a catalyst for action, as many of the colleagues who attended the event felt inspired, but also more equipped and confident in having open conversations about our experiences and differences, as well as creating actions for change.
