Opciónate delivered 12 sessions on equality and emotional intelligence

Throughout 2019 and early 2020, Opciónate delivered a total of 12 2-hour sessions for associated workers of the San Bartolomé de Tirajana City Council, an effort that laid the foundations for better interpersonal relationships (social skills, use of appropriate language free of insults and verbal abuse) enabling conflict resolution in the most empathetic and assertive way possible.

In addition, participants gained an understanding of ways to promote and encourage a change of mentality in both women and men towards the progress already being made in relation to women’s access to higher-level positions relative to those of men and delved into the lines of action of the San Bartolomé de Tirajana Office for Equality and its Equality Plan.

Contents included, on the one hand, the gender approach, stereotyping and forms of discrimination in the workplace and, on the other, emotional and social intelligence, as well as key concepts and practices such as empathy, assertiveness, non-violent communication, negotiation and conflict resolution skills from a gender perspective.
