Feminism, Intersectionality and Leadership

Introducing feminism and intersectionality through a combination of theory and exercises where the participants will get an opportunity to discuss and explore different concepts and terms. We discuss leadership through various exercises and cover topics of what we associate with leaders, traditional assumptions of leadership, how to lead well and the relationship with feminism.

Unconscious Bias Interrupted

We explore unconscious bias, where it can originate from, examples of how it can be manifested in the workplace, and how to interrupt and challenge such bias.

Burnout is a serious condition that mainly affects women. We investigate what burnout is, its symptoms and what causes burnout at the workplace. We thereafter consider measures, policies and procedures that the work place could take to prevent burnout happening to their staff.
