The South-African Dream Revisited: 30 Years Later
Conversations on the State of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Transformation
The Rainbow nation, through various highs and lows, has been on a roller-coaster ride ever since 1994. Celebrating three decades of democracy offers an opportune moment to reflect on our journey, and our state of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Transformation. TDCI in collaboration with various partners will be hosting conversations nationally to explore our journey (past and present), revisit our South-African dream, and conceptualise what needs to be done to propel us towards a generative future. We believe that South-Africa can be better. Beyond just being stronger together, we believe that WE CAN DO HUMAN BETTER!!!
We would like to invite you to be part of this crucial conversations.
Attendance will be free of charge. Watch this space for more information about venues and dates.

The Robben Island Diversity Experience (RIDE) 2.0, in its evolved version, is a profound professional and an intense personal developmental journey. Professionally the purpose of the event is to enable practitioners to attain an advanced understanding of ‘diversity’ as phenomenon, the factors that shape our emergence as human beings, and the dynamics that inform the way we perceive, understand, and engage as collectives. The experience has a solid theoretical foundation that affords practitioners new lenses to study and understand human relations.
Personally, delegates are confronted with their own reference systems, blind spots, identity, level of consciousness, evolving stages of psychological development, power, and relatedness. In this developmental journey elements of waking-up, growing-up, and cleaning-up are woven together to enable them to show-up differently. In the words of Claire Graves: “We cannot be before we are” – we cannot be inclusive, emotionally intelligent, or culturally competent before we develop and own those capacities.
RIDE 2.0 provides practitioners with a master code to host vertical conversations about diversity dynamics and conceptualise the field from an integral perspective. The 2024 RIDE 2.0 will be launched 1st of March during the practitioner forum session. Book early to be part of this life-changing experience.
