Women Leaders of Social Change – FREE training

Women’s Resource Centre – the national umbrella body for women’s organisations in the UK,  have launched a new Women’s Leadership project.

It is a FREE training course which involves 2 days of intensive training on leadership and social change as well as peer support sessions. It will culminate in a Showcase event in the House of Lords on 11 March 2019 ( cover the travel costs will be covered).

The training aims to:

  • Investigate and explore what makes a successful leader and a leader of social change
  • Explore topics related to power, organisational cultures and structures, the relationship between leadership and empowerment, self-care and emotional intelligence.
  • Build skills in public speaking and advocacy

During the training, the group will be tasked to come up with a social issue that they will want to tackle through a social action project. The group will work on this project beyond the training with a deadline of mid-February. This project is meant to be small-scale and manageable within the time frame and with other commitments as we do appreciate that all attendees are employees and therefore have limited time.

The training is taking place in Bournemouth on 12-13 December.

For more information about the project and how to apply please see here or look at attached leaflet.

Please note that while we prioritize women aged 20-30 who identify as BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic), we welcome ALL women to register.
