What other people say...

"The anti-sexual harassment workshop was an eye-opening experience for associates at Amazon Bristol, both men and women alike. The session was engaging and informative, allowing the team to reflect on current workplace practices and how we can work to improve them together. A huge thank you to the team at Bristol Women's Voice!"

"The Senior Leadership Team at Avon Fire and Rescue Service were delighted to invite Katy, in collaboration with SARI Director Alex Raikes, to deliver misogyny and sexism training. Every member of the SLT went away from the session inspired and with a raised sense of awareness about the effects of misogyny, how to identify it and take appropriate steps to address it. The training has directly informed and supported our continued work on our cultural change program and helped us take a further step to making Avon Fire and Rescue Service a better place to work."
