Whatever stage you’re at in your career, it’s always good to know that there are others in the same boat.

Speaking to women facing similar challenges in a supportive environment can be reassuring, inspiring and encouraging. Our workshops give the opportunity to do just that, whilst at the same time building your skills and esteem to take your next career step. So whether you are contemplating returning to work after a career break, about to move into a senior position within your organisation or simply thinking it might be time for a change, then there is an Equate Scotland workshop that’s just right for you.

All of our workshops are built on as “asset model” we believe that inequality across our society creates an environment where women are often not afforded the opportunities to develop certain skills or discouraged from seeing themselves as confident or as leaders. Our workshops dispel these myths and support women to succeed.

At Equate Scotland we run a programme of career development workshops throughout the year. Check our events page to be kept informed of the dates of the next workshops.
