Our next Alumni event will be held online at 12-12:40pm on Tuesday 10th May with guest speaker Lisa McAteer. Lisa will take you on a journey through the eyes of lived experience and share some thoughts and ideas about how we can change the narrative around disability. Lisa will cover; her story, language and how to be a good ally.
Last month saw the launch of our EMPOWER for Men Programme. Many of our clients, after seeing the benefits of our original Women’s EMPOWER Programme, have asked if we would develop the programme specifically for men.
Stats from our first cohort show that 75% of delegates feel more positive about future progression, 100% have increased their confidence and self-belief and 100% would recommend the programme to colleagues.
