Empowering female leaders of colour
Full day

Overview

** Please note - this course is selling very quickly.**

Recent dialogs amongst some of the world’s leaders suggest that businesses that invest in Women of Colour gain a more diverse perspective and win more business. In spite of this, representation in leadership is still very low. “Business in the Community” (BITC), a group founded by the Prince of Wales to support responsible business, found that Black people held just 1.5% of the 3.7m leadership positions across the UK’s public and private sectors in 2019, compared with 1.4% in 2014. This research suggests that businesses still have a lot to do to support and encourage them in their leadership pursuits.

How can a Woman of Colour navigate the day-to-day unspoken challenges of her role? The double-edged sword of race and gender puts them under a constant spotlight of scrutiny. This leadership training has been designed to enable talented women use their self-awareness in reinforcing their emotional intelligence, authenticity and agility.

It is aimed to support Women of Colour adapt daily habits and strategies in navigating the personal, organisational and political challenges of their role, without sacrificing their individuality and cultural identity. Participants will be encouraged to explore unique skills, tools and habits to enhance their impact as an effective leader.

If you are looking to bolster your own self-confidence, become more visible for leadership roles; succeed in leading more authentically; engage and share experiences with other female leaders and build a supportive network, then this course is for you.

Feedback

I found the Women of colour in leadership workshop to be very insightful. It felt good to walk into a room and feel like you belong. Meeting all the other women and knowing that we all face similar challenges in the workplace was reassuring that I am not alone. I wish to have had more time to hear from all the women in attendance, but overall Dorinda did a fantastic job navigating the workshop and sharing her own experiences but also made sure everyone who had a point shared it freely with everyone. Thanks

I found this an immensely valuable event (felt like more of a workshop - in a good way :). Our facilitator Dorinda Nartey was insightful and encouraged me to consider and discuss this topic from different perspectives. She also created a safe space for all of us to freely raise our various experiences. As a consequence, I felt empowered to deliver my authentic self at work. Thank you!

Today was a positive, uplifting day. The trainer Dorinda was absolutely amazing, very genuine and open, warm spirit. So nice to be around grounding women of colour. Nice to have a reminder that we matter, we can do this and all coming from a place of unconditional love. Thank you so much. I will continue to strive to be the best me. Bless and love to all that attended today.
