Training and Development

Equate Scotland has over 10 years of experience in promoting gender equality and developing inclusive cultures in STEM sectors across Scotland. This strong track record of working with both industry and academia enables us to develop a training portfolio that is practical and informative at the same time as being challenging and inspiring. We want to support you to adopt a ‘whole-organisation’ approach to equality and diversity and our expert trainers will work with you to identify your organisation’s needs and deliver training specifically tailored to your organisation.  We can offer shorter briefing sessions, half day workshops, 1 day courses or longer programmes.

All our workshops are interactive in style. Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences and assisted to make the most of the time away from their normal working day to approach the issues in a considered and meaningful way.

Feedback is as important to us as it is to you and we will follow up any training intervention with a full evaluative briefing.

Course costs are £400 for a half day session and £600 for a full day session. Bespoke training may incur additional costs and depending on your organisation costs can be subsidised.

Through our funded Positive Action Project we are able to offer free training on the use of positive action and the impact of gendered language as well as free language reviews of marketing, web, recruitment and other written materials.

“Equate have been invaluable to us over the last 2 years and have been integral in helping us to shape our diversity strategy and in particular, in increasing our Women in Technology numbers. Their credibility and knowledge have been integral to us along with their support in strengthening our network within the D&I community. The training they have delivered for us has been: engaging, relevant and provided us with tangible actions we have been able to take forward and develop. We really can’t recommend them highly enough.”
