Working in partnership with us means your organisation and leaders get to work with a team of psychologists, facilitators and coaches, all highly specialised in the area of gender inclusion and leadership development. We offer every client a completely bespoke programme focusing on your organisation’s goals and what’s important to you – for your growth and success.

Are you aiming for a more gender-balanced workplace?
Are your current female initiatives barely making any ground?
This is common.

Let’s take a look at the other side of the gender coin: men want to be more active and involved in their children’s lives. And yet men spend longer hours in the workplace than women and being the breadwinner still plays a key part in what it means to be a man.

This pressure to fulfil their role can cause men emotional strain, stress, burnout and health problems. An organisation that supports men to balance their work and home lives will see increased work performance, commitment and greater wellbeing. Plus, it supports female progression as the expectation of flexible working extends to men too.

A half-day interactive workshop for men. It provides a safe space where participants can share their views and experiences of the pressures they face in conforming to expectations of ‘being a man’ and, more importantly, where these pressures come from. Participants will leave with the tools and techniques to support them in making authentic decisions about work and home.

How well are your managers and leaders supporting staff with caring responsibilities?
Do they understand the challenges different types of carers face?
And do they know what to say or do?

Our UK workforce is largely made up of carers. Whether caring for children, elderly or disabled relatives, we know how stressful and challenging caring for dependents can be. So much so that many carers want to reduce their hours of work or leave their companies as a result of the confl icting demands. Different carers face specifi c issues and therefore require tailored support from their colleagues, line managers and employers. Not only is getting this right crucial for their wellbeing but it is also fundamental to business success in terms of retaining talented people in the organisation.

A 1.5 to 2-hour interactive workshop designed to help managers and leaders think diff erently about the barriers that exist in the workplace for carers. Participants will leave with the sought-after tools to impact the organisational system by understanding the small changes they can make to deliver a far more inclusive workplace for parents and carers alike.

We’ll meet with you, your CEO and Board to understand what’s working and what isn’t, your aspirations and goals and what problem if solved will enhance your chances of success.


We’ll then design a programme to solve your problem. This might be a mixture of a number of our services. It isn’t a one size fits all, we’ll design something that works for you.


We’ll deliver the programme in such a way that offers you full ownership of what is rolled out and the outcomes. We’ll facilitate, support and coach; we’ll be present at every step.


We’ll measure at different points along the way and evaluate the change your programme has made to achieving your goals.
