Free workshop on skills to help reduce inequalities

Posted: 10th September 2021

Equate Scotland is offering a free online workshop for employers, employees, and educators in STEM and the Built Environment. Take the opportunity to learn more about the experience of women in STEM, and a broader discussion on equality, diversity and inclusion. Join our free 2-hour online workshop to learn more about the steps that you can take to mitigate inequality.

From the lens of the underrepresentation of women in STEM, we will explore how biases impact our interactions and decision-making processes. We will review strategies for recognising and counteracting inequality in the workplace.

This is an open session for employers, employees and educators of all genders within STEM fields in Scotland.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How and why we make choices/decisions about people
  • Types of biases and cultural influence
  • Where and how bias influences the workplace
  • Recognising and counteracting bias
