ProGender+

SU Gender’s ProGender+ Program is geared toward professionals and the corporate world. With a focus on gender, diversity, and inclusion, ProGender+ offers tailored training programs, workshops, lectures, webinars, consulting, advisory and administrative support to establish Diversity and Inclusion Units in companies and organizations. The program organizes training programs and consulting in English and Turkish on Gender Equality in the Workplace, Inclusive Leadership, Gender Bias Busting, Sexual Violence and Harassment, Inclusive Language, Developing Gender Action Plans, Constructing an Inclusive Organizational Culture, Gender and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and Diversity Management. 

The companies that worked with our ProGender+ Team in the past, wrote guidebooks, developed gender action plans, led social media campaigns, spearheading literature, theater and film festivals on gender and diversity, endorsed SU Gender’s scholarship fund, mainstreamed gender equality workshops to all employees in their institutions, and worked creatively with us to develop new and innovative roadmaps on our mutual journey toward gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
