Place

We can provide training or facilitate a session at your place, at ours or other suitable location. During initial talks you can tell us what you have in mind and when you want us and how long for. From one-to-one, groups sessions, to carrying out research, our style is personalised to your needs.

It’s what we do and how we do it.

All too often we hear from both the private and public sector that believe or make an implicit assumption, that their management theories should be applied to Women’s voluntary  community and social enterprise organisations to make us more effective.

However whilst these theories can bring benefits, they are often of limited value because they fail to recognise that the women’s sector is incredibly diverse, from women’s centres that provide holistic services, to individual women, to organisations that support a specific client group (e.g. lesbian organisations), to campaigning organisations.

We know the sector reflects the diversity of women – it includes organisations that serve refugees, asylum seekers, lesbians, older women, younger women and girls, women with disabilities, campaigning women, women experiencing domestic violence and women from particular Black and Minority Ethnic or faith communities.

The enormous positive impact that these organisations have in their communities is a cause for celebration.

We understand that women may draw their identity from a range of sources and they can, and often do, experience multiple barriers to realising equality that gender is experienced and constructed in complex, changing and sometimes contradictory ways.
