Women of Colour in Leadership, Part 2 (workshop and networking session)

Building Your Strategy for Success
Full day


This workshop is recommended for participants who have initially attended Part 1 in the series of workshops for Women of Colour in Leadership; where we explored how to manoeuvre the challenges faced by the Woman of Colour in her leadership pursuits; as well as tools in managing presence, impact, and influence. Part 2 of the workshop focuses on building your strategy for success.

Please note the workshop runs from 9.30am until 3.00pm and then there will be an informal network session between 3pm and 5pm.

Research confirms that the corporate world does not always champion Women of Colour in her development. Women of Colour are more likely to be passed over for promotions, have their competence questioned and experience less support, sponsorship and allyship in the workplace. In Part 1, we recognised that hard work alone is simply not enough in enabling the ambitious Woman of Colour move up the leadership ladder.

In recent times, organisational leaders have become more aware and conscious of their contribution to the lack of diversity at executive level. Research highlights the benefits of diversity to organisation success, mainly in promoting innovation and growth. This workshop has been designed to enable Women of Colour overcome what might feel like a lonely island in their leadership pursuits.

Are you looking to develop the strategies essential in securing senior leadership roles? Are you keen to build stronger allyships, communicate your leadership goals with greater confidence and gain the support required in securing these roles?

This workshop is all about movement and positioning - towards a more fulfilling and satisfying career. If you are looking to develop a clear strategy that is unique to your leadership goals, strengthen your key relationships and untap the hidden potential within, then part 2 of this workshop is for you.

Women of Colour in Leadership Part 2 with Dorinda Nartey was absolutely amazing. The session really built on the skills we had learned in part 1 and gave an opportunity to reflect on how we could apply the learning day to day. It was also a fantastic opportunity to connect and share with other Women of Colour in senior leadership positions. Dorinda is a wonderful facilitator and coach! I would highly recommend :-)
