Mx of Equality (MxE)
In Business & Leadership
About This Programme
“The MBA for the future” – The Mx* of Equality is a world-first leadership development programme for people committed to designing, creating and leading to workplaces that provide equality for all, from a different paradigm of leadership – one of trust and freedom, not power and control.
* Why Mx? It’s gender neutral.
The programme is designed for senior leaders and executives who are invested in leading from a different paradigm – from a base of trust and freedom, and not power and control – and who understand the benefits of equality for everyone, including those currently with the most privilege.
Learners who participate in the Mx of Equality programme will:
- Learn, practice and hone the personal competencies and skills they need to lead people with more humanity, more awareness and more understanding (of self and others) to create more safety and equality in the workplace.
- Gain access to and understand how to use the frameworks, tools and resources needed to design, implement and lead change across an entire organisation for a more equitable and equal workplace for everyone.
The programme is ideal for:
- Executives and senior leadership teams who are committed to moving towards an equal organisation, at all levels.
- HR and People professionals who’ve been tasked with ‘DEI’ objectives in their company, but without the support required.
- Founders and startups who’d like a roadmap to build their company with equality as a foundation, from the start.
A core programme of 8 modules. Complete all 8 modules and a final ‘live’ project for accreditation from the Equaliversity.
For full accreditation, students will be required to complete a final project with the focus on putting theory into practice and achieving real impact and change, in the world today.
The programme is modular and consists of modules that include:
- Introduction: The Path To Equality
- Doing Management, Equally.
- Doing People, Equally.
- Doing Leadership, Equally.
We use the REAL framework (depicted) to ensure that change is addressed at all levels.
This includes equipping students with the knowledge and skills needed at an individual level and providing tools, resources, frameworks and more to achieve equality at a collective and organisational level.
The course is delivered 100% online using a variety of multimedia content formats, including:
While most of the initial content will be in 2D format, more experiential, 3D virtual reality formats will be added to enrich the experience in future versions. Aside from the introductory module, the programme is not linear; students can start with any module they choose and work through them in any order.
Access to the program is through Leadership Team membership of the Equaliversity. You can find out more here.
The programme launched mid-year 2023 with the introductory module; the contents of each further module will be made available every 2-3 months with the full programme contents due to be available by the end of 2024 to those with current membership.
