How to improve Gender Equality & Workplace Inclusivity
- Have a leadership position within an SME business
- Have a good knowledge of the recruitment process within your SME
This course is part of the free tailored support programme offered, by the Engendering STEM team, to SMEs with a commitment to improving gender equality.
For small and medium sized companies (SMEs), where there may be little internal resource, and potentially no dedicated human resource department, attracting the talent to maintain growth and meet their business needs can seem like a daunting task.
However, change can still be achieved!
The Engendering STEM team - a collaboration between Erasmus+ partners in the Netherlands, Scotland and the Basque Country in Spain - have created a course providing evidence-based solutions and practical, incremental steps that employers can take to facilitate learning, and assist in turning gender equality rhetoric into action.
Who this course is for:
- SME Employers operating within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sectors who want to embrace gender equality.
- SME Employers
- SME Human Resource Teams
- HR Team Leaders
- Management level employees
- Recruitment Officers
- SME Directors
- SME Managers

ENGENDERING STEM project is a pan-European collaborative development project with Erasmus+ partners from Scotland (City of Glasgow College & Equate Scotland), Netherlands (VHTO) and The Basque Country (Miguel Altuna).
The project aims to share learning and good practice amongst European partners to support SMEs operating within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sectors to be bolder on gender equality. Evidence shows that greater diversity in the workplace leads to sustainable and inclusive growth and improved productivity and performance. However, SMEs report common challenges to developing more inclusive workplaces include time, resource, access to expertise and awareness of effective practices.
Our project has identified common barriers and associated interventional strategies that have proven to be most effective for improving gender equality.
The project team will therefore deliver an evidence based self assessment toolkit, best practice guide and blended learning training solutions to over 2000 participants.
