Course Details

The Importance of Diversity in the workplace is acknowledged by everyone. For a healthy performance-oriented culture, organisations need the right mix of talent which is not bound by gender. However, the challenge that they face is how to make diversity work and have an organisation where everyone feels a sense of belongingness and a place where they can bring their complete self to work. Ascend is our Gender Sensitisation Program, aimed at sensitising employees on gender-related issues by helping them understand gender differences and enabling them to take an approach that is responsive to gender differences and relations between genders, be it colleagues, clients, or partners.

The goal of gender sensitisation is to address issues in gender equality and encourage participants to pursue solutions to build a safe workplace for all genders.

The program includes a positive and gender-intelligent organisational culture, growth, and progress of women leaders and also deals with lower levels of gender conflict and harassment.

Elements of the workshop include

  • Getting aware of one’s blind spots and unconscious biases
  • Learning strategies to overcome personal biases
  • Focussing on psychological safety for a diverse team
  • Improving workplace collaboration
  • Creating a more inclusive workplace
