    One Housing has launched its innovative Women in Leadership Programme, designed to support women at all stages in their career and create a positive environment to gain new skills, challenge stale perceptions and  share valuable experiences.

    Informed by our gender equality research and in response to requests for practical tools by women in the workplace, this leadership programme equips learners with relevant internal techniques and strategies to overcome obstacles related to gender inequality within the workplace.

    The eight-module course develops skills such as strengths-based leadership and communication, alongside equipping participants to challenge limiting self-beliefs, using mindfulness techniques, embracing risk and developing a positive mindset. The Women in Leadership Programme can be delivered as part of a Chartered Management Institute Leadership and Management Apprenticeship, which One Academy also offers.

    Marc Molloy, Group Head of One Academy, said: “We are excited to launch the ‘Women in Leadership Programme’. The programme is available now and can be implemented in any forward-thinking organisation, and certainly in other housing associations. We are delighted to provide a new and dynamic tool to tackle gender inequalities and help to ensure women are represented at all levels of leadership.”

    Ria Bailes, One Housing’s Executive Director of People and Change, said: “One Housing is proud to use the feedback of 100s of women to form a programme that gives them tools to be their best. This leadership programme is for women who want to develop world class management skills and become inspiring leaders.”
