Gender Equality

What will you learn?

Tackling gender inequality remains one of the most persistent challenges and issues facing organisations. Gender equality is vital for a fair and effective workplace yet is often misunderstood.

If gender equality is to be truly championed within an organisation everyone needs to understand the challenges, the barriers, the impact of their own behaviours and attitudes and – most importantly of all – what they can do. This Lunch and Learn session will examine what everyone can do to understand and promote workplace gender equality.

Available dates:

  • Friday 1 April 2022  from 1.00 – 2.00pm

LGBTQ+

What will you learn?

One of the biggest barriers to having discussions around LGBTQ+ identities is the fear of “getting it wrong”. Whether this is due a lack of available information or accidentally saying the wrong thing, many people shy away from the conversation because they do not feel that there is a ‘safe space’ to make a mistake. Perhaps you’ve heard of terms like “non binary” and don’t know what this means and don’t want to be seen as out of touch by asking.

This lunch and learn session will be an open place to begin and develop discussions around LGBT+ language & terminology with the overall aim of de-busting myths and increasing confidence. The session is aimed at all levels and at people who may be having LGBTQ+ conversations for the first time.

Available dates:

  • Friday 29 April 2022  from 1.00 – 2.00pm

Neurodiversity

What will you learn?

Perhaps you keep hearing this term and aren’t quite sure what it means. Perhaps you, or someone you know is neurodivergent and wish to learn more about the impact this has on someone within the work place.

This lunch and learn session will explore the broad range of neurodiversity, including common traits, as well as practical help and advice for working with the public and for within your workplace.
