What our learning partners had to say
The course was interesting, revealing, and educative as it gave me a different perspective of women and the gender issues encountered in the workplace. My understanding of the topics has been expanded, and [the course] has made me desire to ensure the implementation of gender equality and gender-friendly networking processes in my organisation. The online experience was seamless, and the support provided was excellent. The tutors were readily available to respond to requests for information.Amaka Agusiobo

I found this course very helpful. I wish I had taken it much earlier. The materials are useful and relevant to the topics for each module. My understanding [of the topic] has been enhanced, I have been able to put a name to some of the niggling practices I have observed, and [I’ve] developed strategies to deal with these issues. The online learning has been excellent, I have not had any problems with accessing the materials when I was connected. I have received excellent online support from the team, they are patient, polite, and very helpful.Patricia Palale

I enjoyed this highly researched and well-presented course. I now have a greater understanding of the barriers women face in the workplace, as well as increased awareness and tools to overcome these barriers.Ashna Decina

This course has contributed to my perspective on how organisations and leaders can foster a sense of belonging that supports diversity, and complements personal mindsets, resilience, and grit. The course content was a good mix of video, enrichment materials and course notes, and the required assignments were a good opportunity to apply learnings to real-world situations. With all courses, there is added value in connecting with other learners – and this one was no different. I extracted a huge amount of value from reading about the experiences of the diverse group of women on this course – this certainly enhanced and complemented the learning opportunity.Briony Liber
