Digital Workshops

Empowered individuals build workplaces, services and communities where everyone can achieve their potential.

Stonewall workshops give delegates an opportunity to learn the latest best practice. They're built using the expertise we've gained from working with over 900 leading employers in the UK and around the world.

We take an empowerment approach to all our learning sessions, the highly interactive workshops blend knowledge sharing and practical exercises to suit various learning styles. We hold the firm belief that individuals create more inclusive cultures through delegates sharing their experiences and ideas, so everyone leaves with practical ways to make a difference in their role.

Our selection of introductory workshops will help you build strong organisational foundations. They provide a valuable opportunity to engage and educate all staff. For those leading on LGBTQ+ inclusion, they'll provide the practical insights to develop an action plan that works.

Our advanced workshops provide a deep dive on specific topics. Some sessions, including those on LGBTQ+ mental health, will further educate your staff. Whereas others provide a framework for teams to learn and plan around specific topics such as service delivery or supporting colleagues.
