UPCOMING EVENTS

19TH NOVEMBER 2018: MASCULINITY IN THE WORKPLACE BY HEANDSHE x TOKEN MAN

On International Men's Day we are instigating a conversation about masculinity in the workplace.

Masculinity is in the news - but for the wrong reasons. Stress and mental health issues are on the rise while unconscious bias means it is harder for men to ‘lean in’ at home. Yet our constructs around masculinity mean that it is sometimes hard for men to ask for the support they need. Perhaps it's time for masculinity to evolve. How can the workplace be a microcosm for the change we want to see in the world? How do we create a more modern, inclusive and open workplace culture that works for men, women and everyone? And what have people already done to create positive change in the workplace?

PREVIOUS EVENTS

1ST MARCH 2018: #DIVERSEMINDS:THE NEURODIVERSITY CONFERENCE 

How do we unlock the power of divergent thinkers in the workplace? What are the barriers those with aspergers, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia and more face when it comes to recruitment? And how do we create welcoming workspaces where different types of brains can thrive? 

Whether you're a parent facing challenges outside of work, have a neurodiverse mind yourself and are looking for more information or are an HR director looking to help some of your staff unleash their talents, come and join us for a practical hand-on day of talks, workshops and panels.


7TH NOVEMBER 2017: FATHERS IN THE WORKPLACE BY HEANDSHE x TOKEN MAN

With all the discussion around gender equality, much of the focus has been on women and the impact motherhood has on their career. But what about the challenges fathers face? Why are more not taking up shared parental leave? Why do so few take flexible working? And what are the challenges for a dad who decides to take the primary carer role? We believe that if men shared more of the responsibilities that come with being a parent, it would have a dramatic impact on their partners and ultimately gender equality. This event will explore how we can make this happen.


11TH & 12TH OCTOBER: THE DARING WAY™ FOR FEMALE LEADERS

The Daring Way™ has been developed to help men and women learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The method was designed for work with individuals, work teams, and organisational leaders and can be facilitated in both educational and professional settings.

During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live and lead.


28TH SEPTEMBER: NATIONAL INCLUSION WEEK - NEURODIVERSITY BREAKFAST

We want to ensure that Neurodiversity is a subject that is very much on the table for National Inclusion Week and to continue the conversation started by Sam Phillips in Campaign back in June.

Creative Equals, The Hobbs Consultancy and OMG UK are partnering to move forwards this conversation and to come up with ideas about how we can make our industry more accessible to those that are not neurotypical.

Neurodiversity is so rarely a topic in our industry and yet we perhaps have so much to gain. We welcome you in joining us in our conversation.

12TH SEPTEMBER: RISING STRONG™

If we are courageous, more often, we will fall.  This course explores what it takes to get ourselves back up again.  It is those of us who know that we can get back up again that can live the bravest lives. Come and explore Brené Brown's work in further detail and apply The Reckoning, The Rumble and The Revolution to your own lives.

The Rising Strong™ course consists of two x four hour evening workshops in a central London location with homework and a 1:1 coaching session to complete in between.

24TH & 25TH JUNE: THE DARING WAY FOR COACHES AND HELPING PROFESSIONALS

The Daring Way™ has been developed to help men and women learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The method was designed for work with individuals, work teams, and organisational leaders and can be facilitated in both educational and professional settings.

During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live and lead.

20TH JUNE: HeANDShe CONFERENCE: DO WE HAVE THE COURAGE REQUIRED FOR CHANGE

HeANDShe are a series of TED style events exploring what could be possible if we could integrate rather than separate along gender lines.

There has been a lot of talk about change in gender representation, politics and identities yet sometimes it feels like progress is painfully slow (certainly for women). What is getting in the way of real change? This evening’s event will explore whether it is our fear of vulnerability that is getting in the way. Is it ultimately going to take an extraordinary amount of courage, vulnerability and shame resilience to breakdown the gendered stereotypes through which we live our lives? Whilst women have collectively found their voice, how are men truly feeling about the pace of change? What is getting in the way for them?


14TH & 15TH JUNE: THE DARING WAY™ FOR MALE LEADERS

The Daring Way™ has been developed to help men and women learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The method was designed for work with individuals, work teams, and organisational leaders and can be facilitated in both educational and professional settings.

During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live and lead.
