What we created:
As part of Women in Transport, we created a partnership called Women in Transport Lead from scratch, with Programme 1 starting in April 2021. Lead is an eight month long programme which needs a commitment of four hours per week from participants. It runs three times each year with a group size of 16-18. The programme is attracting a wide range of participants from a diverse range of organisations in the transport sector. We work very closely with our client organisations, participants, alumnae, speakers and a range of other stakeholders to maximise the progression outcomes and impact on the sector as a whole.
The client prompt:
Women in Transport spotted that they had a gap for a leadership programme in their portfolio of offerings. Based on her experience of similar programmes elsewhere, Gill suggested to the CEO creating a bespoke offering for the development of senior women working in the transport sector.
