Have a Question?
This is the first time this kind of training has been useful and I have participated in seven or eight sessions elsewhere previously.
It was an aha moment to recognize that many behaviours are fitting a predetermined narrative we have and it was excellent to work through how we address that.
We have come a long way in history to further close the gender gap between men and women, but needless to say there is lots of room to improve. I appreciated the discussion of the difference between equality and equity, and how given our position in society we have different needs in order to receive equality due to how our world is inherently structured.
