Flexible, responsive consultancy in the area of diversity, equality, leadership and entrepreneurship. Specialists in employability and improving access to learning and life chances for under-represented groups.
Inova has been running since 2001 and provides consultancy services in the area of entrepreneurship and career development, with a focus on diversity and equal opportunities. In particular, our work has focused on supporting those who are under-represented or who face particular challenges to fulfil their potential in a professional setting. For example, we have worked extensively with women in non-traditional fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) and our director, Marina Larios, is president of WiTEC, the European Association of Women in SET.
We work with a wide target group for which we provide a wide variety of training and support programmes, all co-funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, to support others to become entrepreneurs or build careers following challenging times. This includes NEET young people, those aged 50+ and women who have been victims of violence, trafficking, homelessness or abuse, to name a few.
Our programmes use coaching and mentoring to develop the ‘soft skills’ needed to be successful in business. We provide one to one coaching, workshops and Enterprise/Career/Mentoring Circles™ – Our Circles are a series of products developed by Inova which combine mentoring, coaching and action learning to support individuals to reflect on and develop either a new or existing business, change or progress in their career or consider their personal life goals. This methodology was recognised by Aberdeen University business academics as a successful programme for the development of entrepreneurial skills.
