Equate Scotland has over fifteen years of experience in promoting gender equality in the workplace and developing inclusive cultures in STEM sectors across Scotland.
Knowing where to start with gender equality activities can be difficult, as can scaling up equality efforts to create genuine and sustainable culture change. With our expertise, we can support you to develop learning and capacity no matter where you are on your gender equality journey.
Whether you are coming to equality, diversity, and inclusion work through consideration of skills shortages, retention issues or the desire to create an inclusive culture and enhance productivity – we are here to support your organisation and your employees.
Every STEM organisation we work with have a different ED&I journey, with different goals and resources available. Our consultancy service reflects the fact that there is no one-size-fits-it-all when it comes to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We work with each partner organisation to identify the right level of support they need and offer tangible solutions they can implement to enhance positive and sustainable change within their organisation.
Talent Attraction Support
The Equate CareerHub supports employers with the attraction of women into STEM roles. It aims at addressing the gender imbalance through recruitment practices and the use of inclusive language in recruitment materials. It also allows employers to show their commitment to creating a more diverse workplace while accessing a niche network of women studying, working, or looking to work in STEM.
Training & workshops
Training is a common and effective tool organisations can use to build a more inclusive and diverse workplace. We have a catalogue of training sessions that are commonly requested by STEM organisations, but we also develop bespoke training to address specific needs. All our workshops are interactive in style. We want every course we run to have an impact on the organisation, not just on the training day itself which is why our training goes beyond basic awareness raising which often has little impact. We believe training is an opportunity to discuss complex issues, ask challenging questions and start elaborating an action plan for your organisation.
There are various opportunities for organisations to engage with Equate Scotland and show their support to the wider community of STEM women in Scotland. You can sponsor one of our events, become a speaker, or provide us with a space to host some of our events. We also welcome new ideas and are constantly looking to develop new partnerships!
