More information about Rachel and Squash

Rachel Crowther is a trained actor, coach and L&D professional. Rachel has led drama-based training workshops for charities, young people and multinational organisations. After facilitating DEI conversations in businesses for the last 6 years, it became clear that the subtle, everyday behaviours that are fuelling gender inequality were hard to identify. They are often unconscious and come from a place of positive intent. This experience with businesses, combined with noticing her 2 year old daughter already being impacted by gender stereotypes, inspired Rachel to take action. And so created Squash.

Squash use drama-based workshops to help people identify their bias by recreating everyday experiences in the workplace – the unconscious behaviours that can be damaging. We then facilitate discussion around what we can all do differently. We are not about cancel culture. Pointing fingers gets nothing done. We all have biases – rather than dwelling on the problem, lets keep the conversation focused on positive action.

Let’s flip the script on gender bias.
