The Facilitators

The training is delivered by two of our Feminist Leadership Trainers:

Evelina Svensson is the Development Manager at Women’s Resource Centre. Evelina is the initiator of the Feminist Leadership programme and together Evelina and Tebussum have designed the programme and delivered it to over 800 participants worldwide since its launch in 2018.

Tebussum Rashid is the Deputy CEO at Action for Race Equality. Tebussum designed the programme together with Evelina. Tebussum has over 30 years' experience of training for voluntary and community organisations on topics including but not limited to: unconscious bias, project management, strategy and fundraising.

Inderjit Sahota has newly joined the Women’s Resource Centre as the Development Manager. She has designed and delivered bespoke training programmes and workshops with leaders from the community and voluntary sector to develop themselves and their organisations. 

Mariama Njie-Ceesay has recently joined WRC as the Project Manager for the Network for Black Women Leaders. Before joining WRC, she delivered training, workshops and programmes to public sector organisations across the UK.

Having two facilitators increases the quality of the programme, as they complement each other in their competencies and capabilities. Having two trainers with different experiences enables a less hierarchical and more collaborative setting with the participants. It also enables a safe, open and interactive atmosphere within the room. The trainers are personable and friendly yet structured and focused. 

“I enjoyed it and appreciated having space to think about the skills and values that a leader of social change requires. I really got a lot from both trainers, who were very generous in sharing their experiences”
