To many, gender parity is all about being fair -but for businesses today it is about access to talent. Female employees are a huge benefit for organisations, however, women still face many challenges in climbing the career ladder.
Organisations need to support women to realise their true potential in their careers and enhance their contributions. To do this we need to create the right environment. Offering a development programme to women as part of your Inclusion and Diversity Strategy creates a safe environment for women to; examine their strengths and how to maximise them, discuss how to enhance and enrich their careers and consider practical strategies for increasing success.
The RISE Women’s Development Programme has been designed to help the women in your business reach their true potential.
RISE consists of a Foundation Day and six half day modules.
The Foundation Day enables delegates to;
•Articulate their unique strengths and contributions
•Explore challenges they face that hold them back
•Deal effectively with the cross-organisational currents in play
•Understand more about internal programming that holds them back
•Influence a variety of stakeholders.
It also allows the team to build a supportive network in their cohort that will stay with them through their development journey.
The programme is an exciting and experiential set of workshops that will provide your delegates with the knowledge and confidence to play to their strengths and overcome barriers they are facing, build gravitas, and manage difficult situations.
The programme integrates leading edge research with participant’s personal experiences to provide practical learning and a usable toolkit of strategies.
