Our Top 10 Workplace Training Programmes Supporting Women.

Updated: Feb 29

To meaningfully support women at work, we must create opportunities for them to further their personal development and leadership skills while also addressing the wider issues within our workplaces that may be holding them back. The following is a list of our top ten training programmes to benefit women in the workplace, both through creating opportunities for growth amongst female employees and by encouraging other employees to be better allies to the women around them.

All of our events, training programmes and corporate solutions are fully bespoke, delivered by our global team of experts, and tailored to the needs of our clients. Don't be afraid to get in touch if you're looking for something not on this list!

1) Women & Microaggressions in the Workplace.

Webinar, Workshop or Panel Discussion.

A session exploring womanhood and the specific challenges that women continue to face in the workplace.

2) Allyship 'Activator' Programme.

Allyship Programme.

A self-empowerment journey designed to build inclusive leadership skills and allyship practice, to support employees from historically marginalised backgrounds. The modules below will illustrate how allyship is about more than just individual actions, it can lead to systemic change and make a real difference in people’s lives. This programme could be aimed at encouraging men in your workplace to be better allies to the women around them or it could focus on fostering allyship between women from different communities.

3) Sexual Harassment, Consent & Boundaries.

Webinar or Workshop.

This session will explore the importance of consent and boundaries in various contexts, such as personal relationships, the workplace, and social interactions. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to recognize and communicate boundaries effectively, and learn practical strategies for building a culture of consent and respect.

4) Who Am I?

Leadership Programme.

‘Who am I?’ is a workshop series supporting LGBTQ+ women with becoming more impactful and intuitive leaders. Each bespoke workshop takes a group of participants through a unique process of deeper self-enquiry; exploring identity and authenticity through a sequence of experiential workshops. With greater clarity of 'self', we become more intuitive with our decisions, and more intentional with how we show up to influence and support others.

5) Menopause and Growing Older at Work.

Talk or Panel Discussion.

A live panel discussion explores the unique experiences of women and some non-binary individuals at work as they age. The session will cover topics such as the challenges and opportunities that individuals face as they age in the workplace, including discrimination, invisibility, and lack of support, and how organizations can create more inclusive and supportive environments.

6) Nurturing Future Leaders.

Webinar or Workshop.

This session focuses on developing and nurturing leadership skills in individuals to prepare them for future leadership roles. The need for leadership development has never been more urgent. As the emphasis on recruiting 'diverse' talent increases, how do we ensure that we are attracting, nurturing, and empowering future leaders. This covers fostering spaces, systems, and cultures where future leaders are inspired to challenge the status-quo, think critically, and take up the mantle on the path to driving change and creating a better working world for all of us.

7) The Modern Family.

Talk or Panel Discussion.

An educational panel discussion bringing together nuanced perspectives and stories from LGBTQ+ parents, and parents of LGBTQ+ children. One of the most important aspects of family planning is to make all families feel included. This includes queer families and single parents. Explore the practical, emotional, social, and challenges surrounding queer parenthood and navigating queer family life. We will learn about related inclusive family topics within queer contexts.

8) Me and My Intersectionality.

Talk or Panel Discussion.

For many women, their gender overlaps with other aspects of their identity, such as their sexuality, race or disability status, compounding in increased levels of marginalisation and discrimination. Speakers will unpack the term 'intersectionality' by sharing their inspiring stories and unique lived experience through the lens of their different intersecting identities.

9) Women, Power and Privilege.

Talk or Panel Discussion.

​This session aims to explore the concepts of power and privilege and how they influence individuals and social systems, as well as how to utilise them to challenge social norms and create inclusive spaces. It emphasises the importance of recognizing and processing power and privilege from a place of empathy and compassion in order to become effective allies in social justice. The session provides an opportunity for participants to reflect on these concepts and their impact in the workplace and wider society.

10) Being a Trans Woman in the Workplace.

Webinar or Workshop.

It is essential that we consider the needs of transgender women when creating programming to empower and celebrate women. In this educational webinar, attendees will learn about gender and identity, as well as how to become an ally to Trans and Non-Binary individuals both in and out of the workplace. The session will cover language and terminology, and guest speakers will share their experiences on how to support and empower gender-diverse colleagues and clients. The webinar will also provide a safe space for conversation, reflection, and opportunities to ask questions.
