gender & equality work

We are regional third sector experts on gender equality. Since 2004 we have been helping public and voluntary sector organisations devise and monitor their equality and diversity policies, first in preparation for the Gender Equality Duty and now under the 2010 Equality Act. We take an intersectional, pan-equality approach, with specialist knowledge in relation to protected characteristics ‘Sex’ and ‘Pregnancy & Maternity’

We work across sectors raising awareness of gender issues and promoting women’s empowerment and women’s rights, from one-off community workshops to accredited courses for professionals. We have worked with a range of commissioners and partners to devise gender audits, policy and practice evaluations and training programmes which meet their specific requirements. Have a look at some of our gender training, resources and research and contact us to find out how we can assist your organisation.
