Announcing our Women and Girls Sector Leadership Programme participants

More than 40 Women and Girls sector leaders revealed as participants in our 2018 Women and Girls Sector Leadership Programme.

We are excited to announce the names of over 40 Senior and Emerging Leaders from the Women and Girls sector who will participate in our Women and Girls Sector Leadership Programme that kicks-off this autumn.

The programme is designed for the Women and Girls Sector and aims to build a stronger, more generous and empowered women's movement. It will seek to nurture leaders within the sector by forging new collaborations and growing resilience so that it can better support its beneficiaries. The programme is being delivered in partnership with funders including Comic Relief, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Pilgrim Trust, Baljeet Sandhu (awardee of the 2017 DvF International Award) and Rosa, The UK Fund for Women and Girls.

Built around Clore Social’s Capabilities Framework, which illustrates the attributes, behaviours and skills for successful leadership, the programme has been designed in partnership with key sector representatives and aims to develop a cadre of leaders to provide robust and effective leadership for their organisations.

Commenting on the launch of the programme earlier this year, Shaks Ghosh, Chief Executive of Clore Social Leadership said: “As we celebrate 100 years of women's suffrage the time is right to build a generation of social leaders to take the movement forward. We are hugely excited to be partnering with funders including Comic Relief, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Pilgrim Trust, Rosa - The UK Fund for Women and Girls, and sector leaders to create this bold, programme that will engage more than 60 Emerging and Senior Leaders. Through a series of coordinated interventions that focus on boosting leadership capability, whilst tackling some of the key issues affecting Women and Girls Sector organisations, we aim to increase resilience and create a stronger, better led sector.”
