Employers

We help employers create workplaces where women are welcome and can develop sustainable careers.

Employers use our services to help them recruit and retain women, support the career development of female employees and develop a fair and open workplace culture.

We work in all areas of industry and academia to create diverse, equal and family friendly workplaces. We enable employers to develop a workplace culture which meets both their business needs and the aspirations of all their staff.

Our Women Returners Scotland Programme allows employers access to a talent pool of experienced and qualified women who are looking to return to employment in STEM.  Employers offer a three month paid placement and can recruit and select their preferred candidate from our talent pool.  Equate provide support to these women returners to get them ready to return to work and to employers before, during and beyond the placement period.

  • Surveys and focus groups.
  • Review of employment policy and practice.
  • Development and support of women’s networks.
  • Supporting women into leadership.
  • Facilitating career development workshops.

We raise awareness of and embed equality practices in organisations through training in:

  • Gender awareness.
  • Equality and diversity.
  • Unconscious bias.
