Training for teams of businesses, nongovernmental organizations or public authorities dedicated to non-discrimination and gender equality.
«Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home—so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, and equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere…»
– Eleanor Roosevelt, Excerpt from the speech on the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. March 27, 1958, United Nations, New York.
- Mutual respect, promotion of gender equality and tolerance is fundamental for creating such a world within a team.
- Collective training dedicated to non-discrimination and combatting of any forms of violence is the beginning of laying such a foundation.
- If your business involves working with and for people, then take the opportunity to use the power of your influence and demonstrate your social position on issues of respect for human rights, equality and diversity.
We strive to raise the team’s awareness on the following topics:

Internal communications manager in Alcor
I want to say that our cooperation was very pleasant from the very beginning: prompt, clear, but at the same time very humane and pleasant communication with Victoria. The topic of the lecture was chosen very quickly and easily based on our requests.
Yaryna prepared a really interesting presentation and all our colleagues were impressed and liked it. Because not only was the presentation visually interesting just as the information in it, but also Yaryna’s speaking skills are very cool.
We always conduct a survey among our colleagues after such lectures, so that our colleagues could evaluate the lecturer and the content. This time, our colleagues rated both Yaryna and the content with 9 out of 10 points)
That’s a great score.)
So, thank you for your cooperation; I am sure that we will meet again!
