WIG Women's Leadership Programme

A 9-month modular programme for talented mid-career women with potential for top leadership roles. The participants are either senior managers in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors; senior civil servants (deputy directors and directors), or local government assistant directors and directors. 

Kate Willsher on how participating in the WIG Women's Leadership Programme boosted her confidence

 

I couldn’t recommend the programme more highly. I have benefited hugely. I have learnt what is important in conversations and what’s important to me. It provides a perfect balance of subject areas and methods which enables you to reach your potential.
