Jo Reynolds (BSc) is an accomplished entrepreneur and seasoned educator, with a demonstrated ability to distil complex concepts into accessible, engaging content for learners of all ages. Jo's entrepreneurial journey has provided a profound understanding of societal structures, including the role and impact of gender dynamics in professional and personal contexts.

In founding three successful companies before the age of 30, Jo navigated diverse professional landscapes, coming to appreciate first-hand the challenges and opportunities linked to gender equality. This real-world experience informs Jo's approach to teaching the subject, grounding theoretical discussions in practical examples.

Furthermore, Jo's extensive experience teaching conversational English to children and adults worldwide has honed an ability to adapt teaching methods to the needs of different age groups. This includes designing age-appropriate content, fostering a safe and inclusive learning environment, and facilitating meaningful discussions.

In teaching this course on gender equality, Jo will draw on these experiences to create a learning experience that is both enlightening and engaging. Lessons will be tailored to the age range of the students, with content and activities designed to promote understanding, encourage critical thinking, and stimulate discussion. Jo's approach to teaching complex subjects is rooted in the belief that with the right guidance, every student can engage with and contribute to discussions on important societal issues.

This class will explore sensitive topics related to gender inequality, including sexism, harassment, and discrimination. Some content may be upsetting or triggering for some learners. It's important to note that while these topics are sensitive, they are also crucial for understanding and addressing gender inequality.

Our goal is to create a safe and inclusive learning environment where students can ask questions and engage in meaningful discussions about these topics. We will be using age-appropriate language and ensuring that all viewpoints are respected. As the facilitator, I will be monitoring discussions to ensure that they are respectful and appropriate. If any student feels uncomfortable or overwhelmed, they will have the option to step away from the discussion or contact me privately.

We understand that many families have different levels of comfort around certain subjects and we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all learners. We recommend parents review the course material and discuss any potential concerns with their children.

If you have any concerns or questions about the sensitivity of the topics covered in this class, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly. I am committed to creating a positive and supportive learning experience for all students.
