We are experts in gender-based workplace issues

Our team takes pride in assisting working women and gender diverse folk with their unique experience of the workplace.

We are committed to empowering workers and we aim to give workers the tools to advocate for themselves in their colleagues in the future. After coming to our service, we want you to have a deeper understanding of your rights at work.

We also focussed on working towards structural change for the inequities that arise from our casework and do so in the form of research, special project work and community education on workplace issues.
