Who are we? 

Schools of Equality Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that runs activity-based programmes and workshops in educational institutions, corporates, not-for-profits and public forums, to shift social attitudes that perpetuate gender-based discrimination, and other forms of identity-based harms.

Why do we exist? 

Insensitivity. Disrespect. Intolerance. Bigotry. Exclusion. Discrimination. Bullying. Violence.

These are a few consequences of the structural inequalities embedded deeply in society. Social identities such as gender, class, caste, ability and others, shape our interactions in society and require deep reflection, attention and action. We at Schools of Equality, have developed a unique programme for students, that focuses on building inclusive communities that encourage acceptance, psychological safety and respect. We design customised workshops for adults as well and conduct public events to create awareness and spaces that promote healthy discourse.
