As the founder of Blossom & Berry and in my capacity as a mentor and coach, I want to outline my commitment to Social Justice, Equality and Equity.
I see entrepreneurship as a catalyst for good in the world. By being more conscious in our lives and business, we can do more and love the world forward with peaceful progression. This is a life’s work and requires doing the work everyday.
Foundations in Social Justice
♡ Listening and communicating on more diverse platforms to include more diversity in our teaching community.
♡ Embed more training to help tackle poverty as an underling cause on social injustice.
♡ Embed BIPOC education in all our courses and have a reading list to encourage social justice.
♡ Meet twice a year in our “let me see what you can see” circle to discuss equality and equity.
♡ Having more BIPOC as part of our senior teaching team.
♡ Auditing my work and businesses for anti-racism on a regular basis.
♡ We also support the values in our original Nurture Manifesto.
♡ More collaborations with other organisations specifically working with BIPOC.
♡ Continue to strive towards relieving poverty through early childhood development in the first 1001 days of life.
♡ Continue to offer our two training bursaries to students each year with a commitment to ensuring that more BIPOC have access to apply.
♡ Actively ensuring we promote our free training bursaries in a variety of communities and diverse space

Gayle Berry – Mentoring
I commit to support the following charities as the founder of Blossom & Berry
♡ The Love Land Foundation
♡ Black Mamas Matter
♡ Help Refugees
♡ Child Poverty Action Group
♡ Family Lives

I commit to do more training on social injustice for BIPOC and celebrate diversity
Bursaries and Mentorship
I am in talks with various charities supporting black mothers wanting to start up a business to provide technology to enable them to do this more effectively.
I continue to provide free mentorship for everyone.
This is my commitment
This is grounded action that I can commit to with the intention of regular review.
This is not the answer to solve the problem but takes things further forward.
This is not a tick box exercise. This is doing the work everyday and challenging yourself to do better.
