Stand by Her

Our original Stand by Her program was designed together with Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid to raise awareness of and tackle sexual harassment.

 

We have since updated this to a more effective program that tackles the underpinning attitudes and behaviours that can lead to harassment, abuse and violence towards women.

 

This new program has prevention and de-escalation at its heart and has been developed by women and is delivered by men…to men.

Being an Effective Ally
(against racism)

Being an Effective Ally (against racism) is a tailored approach for workplace settings. It is suitable for public, private and voluntary sector organisations.

We aim to make a long-lasting change. We educate, empower and equip employees to act and be an ally to those experiencing racism at their workplace based on our Stand by Me interventions model. We work with each organisation to identify the key issues to be addressed and adapt our training to meet this.
