Allies Workshops

Learn about being an effective ally and achieve great results in your workplace.

Working on a solution to a problem on your own is sometimes not the best way to resolve it. Encouragement and advice from people with diverse perspectives who have different knowledge and experience is often crucial to achieving best outcomes. These workshops will focus on ways of unlocking massive potential within your organisation by looking at areas such as breaking down unconscious bias and promoting a positive diversity agenda.

Allies workshops are free to attend, spaces are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Networking for your Career

Dr. Melrona Kirrane & Sandra Healy

Career success is often less to do with who you know, than who knows you. No path offers a better route to success in these domains than effective networking. This workshop will introduce the core components of effective networking and will show you how to build three types of networks to enhance your career success.

Unconscious Bias

Dr. Melrona Kirrane , NWCI

The fact that we tend to prefer people like ourselves is well-established. However, this can lead to making assumptions, sometimes negatively, about people who are different to us. Unfortunately we all do this some of the time but may be unaware of it. This is called unconscious bias. This workshop will explore the nature of such bias and its effects and will discuss strategies we can all implement to limit its effects on our actions.
