Equate Scotland’s training and consultancy support has been in huge demand over the last year. We have had the opportunity to work with large STEM employers, start ups and colleges, providing practical and holistic support to enable them to embed gender equality and ensure they are being proactive in creating inclusive workplace cultures.
The evidence tells us clearly that gender equal and inclusive workplaces are more productive, innovative and profitable, there is both an economic and social imperative for STEM employers and educators to work with us to make equality and reality; whether in the office, on site or in a classroom.
In 2018 we have supported institutions and organisations by:
- Delivering unconscious bias training
- Delivering equality and diversity training for managers
- Facilitating gender equality strategy discussions with senior management teams
- Leadership training for women within companies
- Reviewing and support unviersities and colleges with their gender action plans
- Developing and delivering bespoke training for STEM educators
We are booking sessions for 2019 now, get in touch to find out how we can assist you to make a real and positive change for gender equality.
Anne Farquharson, The Open University: “Equate Scotland’s expertise and support have been invaluable in helping us take our Gender Action Plan (GAP) forward. Not only have they provided practical recommendations on how we can improve our online and prospectus content but also undertaken a full review of our Gender Action Plan and assisted us with the areas we were finding the most challenging. From running an interactive workshop focussed on gender throughout the student journey from enquiry to alumni, to reviewing our guidelines for imagery, their approach has been extremely collaborative, constructive and professional. Their input has already had a significantly positive impact and is helping us achieve buy in across the organisation.”
