We deliver training packages with the sole aim of empowering women and minority people in schools, universities, the workplace, as well as government sectors including the NHS and police force. The training we provide focuses on a range of issues including rape, domestic abuse, coercive and controlling behaviour, sexual harassment and reproductive rights. In addition to this, we tackle societal gender gaps by exploring the wider impact of violence against women and girls and institutional gender inequality in the context of the workplace or educational institutions.
Our training is created and delivered by barristers, solicitors and other professionals working in safeguarding, all of whom have extensive experience in these complex issues and have dedicated their professional lives to challenging failings and developing remedies. Our training is tailored to your specific organisation’s needs. We work in consultation with you to develop a targeted and effective approach.
We centre our training on a mixed methods approach including presentations, case studies and role plays to accommodate different learning styles, as well as drawing on experiences from day-to-day lives in the professional environment. Right to Equality provides a detailed toolkit, including practical support materials provided for each participant to ensure you get the most out of the training, enhancing your knowledge and skills. Our specialist trainers aim to make complex areas of the law clear, accessible and user-friendly for all.
