Programa de DE&I feito à medida

Não há uma solução one-size-fits-all no que toca à implementação de programas de diversidade e inclusão focados no impacto no local de trabalho. Sejam os seus objetivos focados em neurodiversidade, deficiência, feminismo intersectional ou diversidade social, trabalhamos consigo para desenvolver uma estratégia que permita atingir os seus objetivos específicos.

Metodologia Testada

Oferecemos soluções de D&I transformacionais através de uma metodologia testada na comunidade que tem sido continuamente desenvolvida e melhorada ao longo de 10 anos. Os nossos programas de D&I são focados em impacto real e transformação para todas as suas equipas: de liderança, executiva, RH ou todos os colaboradores.

Praticamos O Que Defendemos

No SPEAK, enquanto equipa diversa, temos experiência na criação de espaços inclusivos em ambientes multiculturais. Trabalhamos com uma rede de ativistas e membros representativos da comunidade numa abordagem de contínua aprendizagem e mudança de comportamentos.
