Equality and Inclusivity Training – Leaders Programme

Leaders Programme

Being a Leader means so much more than just organising and heading a project as it also includes creating a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment so that others may flourish and produce the best outputs they can.

From continuously challenging our own unconscious bias, to putting into place fairer recruitment practices, there are many ways in which Leaders can instigate positive change within their workplaces, as well as on a wider stage to the sector, at a relatively low cost.

Scottish Engineering and EQUATE Scotland have partnered to bring you the Leaders Programme, as part of the Inclusive Engineering Programme.

We are looking for individuals from private sector SMEs, preferably within a higher level management position, to get involved in our Leaders Programme and to become ambassadors for the sector to ensure that we continue to see positive growth. You will be provided with role-model training, equality and diversity training and will be shown how to actively engage within the sector to create positive change and impact in a sustainable manner. We hope that participants will use the training provided to create a more positive and inclusive work culture within their organisations, and also aim for sustainability by engaging in equalities activities, within their own capacity, beyond the scope of these sessions.

These training sessions are Free of Charge. We understand that the Leaders will already have quite busy schedules, and as such the programme will comprise of:

• 3 – 2 hour training sessions Morning sessions with complimentary tea, coffee and snacks

Tuesday 3rd March: 9.30am – 11.30am

Wednesday 1st April: 9.30am – 11.30am

Tuesday 5th May: 9.30am – 11.30am

Scottish Engineering Office 105 West George Street Glasgow G2 1QL (Located close to Glasgow Queen Street Station and Buchanan Street Underground Station)

3 – 1 hour Knowledge/Experience Exchange meet ups – these will take place toward the end of the month of each training session, and will consist of relaxed, casual 1 hour meet ups in which participants share what their experiences have been since the previous training session, any changes they’ve implemented or seen, ideas generation etc. Evening meet ups, complimentary refreshments. Dates and venues TBD.

Become a champion for equality, diversity and inclusion, and help lead the way to a fairer and more successful sector.

Deadline for applications for these support sessions is Friday 24th January 2020

We also welcome organisations who are interested in getting involved within a venue hosting capacity to get in touch!  We look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing a fairer and more inclusive engineering sector in Scotland!
