Diversity has been linked to more creativity and innovation in the workplace. When people with different backgrounds and experiences are brought together, it leads to more effective problem-solving. In this workshop, we will talk about the first steps towards building an inclusive company culture, where everyone feels valued and able to contribute their diverse perspectives.

Lépéselőny- Training for challenging gender-based discrimination at the workplace
Maya Fenyvesi, Anna Végh| Amnesty International
The Lépéselőny program aims to eliminate gender-based discrimination in the labor market. Within this framework, in close cooperation with employers, employees, and experts, we have developed a training consisting of optional and basic modules that provide participants with knowledge and skills to recognize discrimination at work. As a result, they can develop action plans to reduce it. Through the Lépéselőny project, we are working for equal workforce opportunities for both women and men.
Many of us struggle when it comes to talking about our own accomplishments. Cultural and gender modesty norms, as well as impostor syndrome, can prevent anyone from acknowledging their remarkable attributes and expressing their achievements. During the 90 minute workshop, you will learn the importance of self-promotion in your personal and professional life and be equipped with tools to develop this skill. Participants will be invited to challenge the social perception around self-promotion.
An exact date is TBA at a later point in time for this online workshop.
