    Ordnance Survey

    The Ordnance Survey consumer team had a fantastic and thought provoking talk from Aneela on diversity. Her talk helped us to reflect on building diversity into our thinking, to help us engage more effectively with our customers and with colleagues. I would thoroughly recommend Aneela to anyone who is looking to build their understanding of diversity in the outdoors. I have already put Aneela forward as an ideal speaker for a major outdoor trade conference later this year." Nick Giles, Managing Director

    Association of mountaineering instructors

    Aneela developed and delivered a tailored Equity and Diversity workshop for our members, and was excellent to work with from first contact, to info gathering, to facilitating the course. We've had wonderful feedback from our members, who have been inspired to adapt the ways they work and incorporate areas from the training. Aneela's years of professional expertise show through her work and ease discussing questions and ideas, while challenging our perceived status quo in a supportive and non-judgemental environment.

    Aneela worked with us on our Rider2Leader pilot programmes where we looked to encourage and build confidence in women aspiring to take on the very exciting challenge of mountain bike leadership in a field where women are underrepresented. With two very different audiences and only a short time to gauge them, she was able to tailor her workshops beautifully with a lovely combination of enthusiasm and honesty which can only be achieved by someone with considerable knowledge and understanding in her subject areas. I’ve continued to work with Aneela to increase diversity and inclusion within mountain bike leadership; she checks, challenges and motivates me every time.

    Singletrack Magazine

    Working with Aneela was a great collaborative experience. She imparted her knowledge in an engaging and honest way that felt accessible and was inspiring rather than intimidating. She combines years of senior professional experience in the equality and diversity sector with a breadth of personal experience. It is clear from her own actions and achievements that she delivers and facilitates real change, and her advice to us was focussed on deliverable and achievable goals rather than just talk or policies without effect.

    I would especially recommend Aneela to any organisation that wants its people to be inspired to improve. She will make you believe that change is possible and that you can be part of the solution. Hannah Dobson, Editorial Manager

    DMBinS

    We chose Aneela to deliver a keynote at our conference because we wanted a presentation that would both challenge and inspire our audience. This is a difficult combination to achieve but Aneela’s force of personality and passion combined with an in-depth knowledge of the subject, mountain biking and diversity, meant that it was a highlight of the conference. We know that several delegates have considered and changed their organisational policies or procedures as a result of her presentation.

    Be a Diversity and Inclusion Champion

    A toolkit for leaders

    Cycling UK is a national cycling body and has over 200 cycling groups affiliated with it across the UK. Their goal was to create a new D&I champion role within their clubs. Aneela designed a toolkit for leaders setting out the role of the champion to support Cycling UK's commitment to increasing diversity. This was followed up with a workshop facilitated by Aneela showcasing the benefits to having this influential role within a cycling group. A number of their clubs now have diversity champions leading the way.

    Inclusive Leadership

    An introduction to Diversity and Inclusion - a CPD module

    The Association of Mountaineering Instructors is the representative body for professional qualified mountaineering and climbing instructors in the UK and Ireland. With the impact of Black Lives Matter, they have been concerned about the lack of diversity in both their membership and in the participation in the outdoors. To address this, their aim was to upskill their members on diversity and inclusion focusing on inclusive leadership, collaboration and empowerment. Aneela is currently delivering a 2 part CPD module for AMI members. Members have since been using positive action approaches to target people from diverse backgrounds.

    Understanding Racism

    A toolkit for the cycling trade

    When Black Lives Matter became a global phenomenon in June 2019, Singletrack Magazine were quick to respond. They wanted to develop a toolkit for the cycle trade through their Singletrack trade division to help raise awareness of the lack of diversity in cycling and provide practical tools to retailers on how to actively build diversity into their working practices. The toolkit was created as a video - a conversation piece between ourselves and Singletrack exploring the important issues Black Lives matter had brought to light in the cycle industry. This has led to an increased commitment from businesses to take steps to address the lack of diversity.

    Bothy Bikepacking for Young Girls

    A leadership programme for young girls

     

    This life skills and leadership programme is aimed at young girls between the ages of 9-16 to help build resiliences and confidence through mountain biking. In 2019, we worked with KICC, a local cycling club and a secondary school to target young girls to participate in a three month programme; using the bike as a vehicle to experience a range of activities including an overnight MTB adventure. By evaluating the process through personal reflection, the programme led to an increased confidence in the girls through building new friendships and learning to be self sufficient on a bike. This programme can also be aimed at adults.
