The EMC programme has helped me to gain the deeper experience of reflecting on myself by having the capacity to be both the participant and observer.
I am more conscious of my defenses and where they come from which is a tool that has enhanced my ability as a leader.
An ally is any person who takes actions, whether they be big or small, and works in solidarity and partnership with marginalised groups of people to take down the systems that challenge their basic rights, equal access, and ability to thrive in our society. Allyship is a journey of life-long learning.
Knowledge is power and the EMC offers everyone the opportunity to look at a situation differently, evaluate it differently and ultimately choose to deal with it differently.
Only through interacting with many people, in different spheres and circumstances, will you have the right conditions for opportunity to be presented to you.
The EMC has provided me with so-called ‘night vision’, a tool we have learnt that enables us to look beyond what things look like on the surface level.
The programme is based on an excellent mix of independent studies, theoretical modules, readings, and papers that enable you to apply what you have learned on yourself and your environment.
I was intrigued by the combination of psychodynamics and organisation development concepts in the programme.
My learnings at the EMC have changed how I interact with people and how I perceive my emotions and behaviour.
The EMC helps to make sense of some aspects of my inner theatre, peeling the onion, layer after layer.
