Women contribute significantly to the workforce across different industries. Hence, employers are mostly encouraged to have policies designed to promote inclusivity in the workplace.

However, in most workplaces – the issue of gender inequity in the workplace continues to limit the true potential of women.

This highly interactive workshop from Dr Minha Rajput-Ray invites women who are currently in employment, looking for a career change, returning to work after a break or entering the workplace for the first time to:

  1. ‘Map out’ their career journey to date with a reflective element on their personal barriers and facilitators.
  2. Practical tips on spotting ‘hidden opportunities,’ negotiating pay gaps, dealing with micro-aggression and work place culture.
  3. Building on strengths – to design a framework towards their next career step.
