The 3rd Multiplier Event was organised by Inova Consultancy and held face-to-face on the 14th October 2022 at Channing Hall, 45 Surrey Street, Sheffield City Centre (UK). A total of 14 participants attended the event.
The event was facilitated by Carolyn Usher (International Project Manager and Trainer/ Coach) and started by welcoming participants, introducing them to Inova, T-Shirt, and the project. Some time was spend introducing the topics of gender bias and conditioning, and imposter syndrome, and then discussed why gender equality is important, and what role schools can play in achieving this. In smaller groups, was discussed what is happening in classrooms. What is working, what isn’t working, what could work? After feeding back to the larger group, then presented the results of the T-Shirt project and shared the link to the platform. The session ended with the evaluation form and some time for networking and informal discussion with refreshments.
The event was overall successful and had both positive and constructive feedback. Some participants suggested that the sessions could be longer to allow for a more in-depth discussion and the content could be diversified to include examples from other countries and cultures. However, the majority of feedback was positive and participants enjoyed the chance to learn about gender equality in the classroom.
