How can stories empower the invisible and unheard?

Communicating on Gender Equality

Non-profit organisations on a mission to fight for inclusivity and gender equality know that providing equal access to opportunities and resources is not so obvious. How to make the invisible visible and the voiceless heard? The realities of mainstream opinions and cultural patterns can be harder than a brick wall and this is so real for those who deal with the topic around gender equality.

During this workshop we illustrate the pitfalls and discoveries and look specifically at cases around inclusivity and gender equality.
