Trauma-Informed Feminist Leadership Action Learning Set (ALS)
Trauma-Informed Feminist Leadership Action Learning Set (ALS) (Code: C1354)

Why trauma-informed feminist leadership?

The handling, inequalities, and increasing inequalities and impact of the pandemic have shown, current and future leaders need to be trauma-informed. Not trauma in the old heroic sense of disasters, but trauma as feminists have redefined it -calling out social beliefs about gender, class, race, disability, migrants that victim-blame and protect perpetrators.

Why action learning?

Action learning is a particularly effective way of learning how to deal with real-world problems.

This timely ALS will help you become a more trauma-informed leader.

Women and wellbeing during Covid-19 action learning set (Code: C1096)

The kinds of developmental activities managers, leaders, and organisations undertake are important to how we learn, survive and work with uncertainty and an ever-changing environment. Covid-19 restrictions, illness and deaths have exacerbated existing intersectional gendered inequalities for students and staff. Putting the voices of marginalised groups front and centre is vital to understanding and responding effectively and compassionately to the different ways people have experienced this global pandemic.
