We offer a range of events and training at Kairos Women+ aimed at professionals and the wider community. We are keen to share our collective knowledge and we pride ourselves on ensuring those with lived experience co-create our events and training, including our staff, volunteers and wider community.
Collaboration is at the heart of our work. Those with direct lived experience develop and deliver all of our training, including staff, volunteers and the wider community. For external organisations, you can book one of our half day sessions for your team by getting in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the price list.
We are also developing Disability Awareness and Inclusivity and Trans Inclusivity training.
We host a range of events exploring women’s lives with themes including addictions, LGBTQ+ lives, women’s representation in history, gender inequality, the gender pay gap, motherhood, women’s invisible work, autism, mental health and more. We also host a range of larger events annual including a Black History Month event and an International Women’s Day event. Take a look at what’s coming up HERE.
We hosted a virtual event to share the experiences of some inspiring LGBTQ+ women and non-binary people in Scotland. The conversation we had was a beautiful exploration of how we can create inclusive communities, and the work we still need to do. You can find the full video HERE.
In celebration of Black History Month, we collaborated with Pachedu “Amongst Ourselves” to showcase black talent across Scotland! You can find the full playlist jam-packed with comedy, talks, food, fashion, business and music HERE.
In 2019, our Development Team planned and hosted an International Women’s Day celebration in St. Margaret’s Church Hall, Johnstone. We were joined by 120 adults and young people for an evening of performances, food, and conversation. We also had local services with us including Glasgow Women’s Library, Women and Children First, Renfrewshire Women’s Aid, Paisley Museum and Women’s Unpaid Work.
For International Women’s Day 2020, Arti Gosai (Kairos Volunteer) hosted an event celebrating the lives of women from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. We shared Indian food, listened to traditional Islamic performances, learnt about Sikhism and traditional fashion plus lots more. The evening ended with Chai Tea and Indian sweet treats – the perfect way to spend an evening!
