Trauma-Informed Feminist Leadership Action Learning Set (ALS)
14/01/2022 @ Online - Trauma-Informed Feminist Leadership Action Learning Set (ALS) - Fridays Jan-Feb 2022 (Code: C1354/002)

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.
