SU Gender’s ProGender+ Program, as the first university-based Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program in Turkey, 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 for corporations and employees at all levels (including CHROs, CFOs, CEOs, and Board Members). 

The training programs and consulting in English and Turkish on Gender Equality in the Workplace include Inclusive Leadership, Feminist Leadership, Gender Bias Busting, Sexual Violence and Harassment, Inclusive Language and Communication Skills in the Workplace, Developing Gender Action Plans, Constructing an Inclusive Organizational Culture, Gender and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Struggling against Inequalities during the Pandemic & Teleworking, and Diversity Management. Furthermore, through our consulting services at ProGender+,  we guide the launching of “Diversity and Inclusion Units” in companies and organizations.

The ProGender+ Team aided many institutions on their journey toward gender equality, diversity and inclusion by providing guidance in writing guidebooks, developing gender action plans, leading social media campaigns, and spearheading literature, theater, and film festivals on gender and diversity. Most institutions included in ProGender+’s network 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 diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

Our trainings are delivered by faculty members at Sabancı University as well as experts in the field of gender equality, law, human rights, and policy-making. Our trainings and workshops emphasize creative pedagogies, such as role-play, mock interviews, and case studies.
