Equate Scotland are the national experts on recruiting, retaining and progressing women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). It is estimated that only 25% of the STEM sector are women. Not only is this a waste of talent and opportunity but it jeopardises Scotland’s chances to be at the forefront of innovation. Diversity is not just a social priority, but also an economic one. Join us and Morton Fraser to discuss how employers can take positive action measures to recruit, retain and progress women in STEM.
This workshop will review what positive action means for employers and how it can be a route to attract a diverse range of candidates. Many employers are reluctant to take positive action measures, however they have been proven to be hugely successful and come with legal backing. The workshop will include a presentation from an employment law expert from Morton Fraser and will build knowledge and confidence enabling employers to be bolder in their equality and diversity efforts.
This workshop will include:
- What positive action is and how to lawfully implement positive action measures.
- Networking with other employers and training providers to share best practice.
- Develop or strengthen your relationship with Equate Scotland’s experts and book bespoke follow up support and/or training.
This event is hosted and delivered in partnership with Morton Fraser and is designed for employers and training providers in STEM. It is open to people of all genders and designed to cater to a wide range of professionals. Strategists, directors, HR professionals, recruitment consultants, equality, diversity and inclusion officers, line managers and board members may find the event particularly relevant.
