We are delighted to announce the names of the 34 leaders who will take part in our 2020 Emerging Leader: Women and Girls Programme. The programme is a five-month leadership journey aimed at emerging leaders working in the Women and Girls sector who are keen to develop their generous, agile, and effective leadership skills and make a real, lasting impact within the sector.
The 2020 cohort consists of leaders working for a variety of organisations, including Young Women’s Trust, Plan International, British Red Cross, Survivors' Network, Dhiverse, Girlguiding, and more. Thanks to generous support from the Pilgrim Trust, Coutts Foundation, Comic Relief, and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, we were able to offer highly subsidised fees, ensuring the programme is accessible across the sector.
Commenting on their experience on the programme, previous participants have said they felt challenged, inspired, and supported:
“The programme inspired and challenged me at a fundamental level; being with women from the sector and learning from others’ experiences was deeply challenging and humbling.” - Josephine Knowles, Co-Director (and Co-Founder) of Beyond the Streets
