who is this programme for?

This programme is specifically designed for women who work in the UK housing sector. 

 Whether you’re starting out in your career, a first-time manager, looking for your next career move, or simply want to build self-awareness and confidence this programme is for you. The programme will help you work out who you are as a leader, and provide the time, space, and guidance you need to own your career, embrace your identity, and uncover your authentic self.

You want to work with like-minded women on a similar journey who will support and share with the same generosity that you intend to.

You may already be a leader with the job title to match, you may be about to embark on your leadership journey stepping into your first leadership role, and you may strive to call yourself a leader in the future. 

You are likely to be curious about personal development and developing a growth mindset. 

You want to better understand yourself so that you become increasingly comfortable with who you are, loosening the reliance on any ‘masks’ you wear and role-model the practice of being true to yourself with those around you. 

You want to build confidence and drive your career forward in a way that is aligned with your values, needs and purpose.
