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.
