We would like to thank all those that attended our #InternationalWomensDay event. International Women’s Day is one that is close to our hearts: a day to celebrate the achievements of the trailblazers that altered the landscape so the women of today can thrive.

There is also more work to be done to achieve greater gender equality in our organisations and communities. It is in our communities that the Inspiring Leadership Trust plays a critical role, helping to inspire and empower women and girls from some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds in the UK and internationally.

Whilst there is extensive evidence to show that women are disproportionately affected by many issues, there is also strong evidence to show that this diminishes proportionally to their financial inclusion. What is good for gender equality is good for the economy and society as a whole.

Therefore, we #choosetochallenge the socio-economic barriers to drive greater social mobility and gender equality by:

  1. Delivering comprehensive and targeted support, from our extraordinary network of professionals through mentoring, work experiences and masterclasses, providing our beneficiaries with the confidence to DREAM BIG and achieve their goals.
  2. Digital learning platform built around a proven model for inspiring performance and success.
  3. Mobilising an extensive network of talented leaders that care deeply and volunteer experience, time and assets.
  4. Collaborating for multi-agency partnering to join the dots across services and bridging the gaps as women and girls’ transition into the next phase in their lives. This enables long-term and sustainable outcomes for our beneficiaries, communities and the economy as a whole.

If you would like to join a community of inspiring leaders that care deeply about change, then do contact us via @inspiringleadershiptrust
