WRC’s Feminist Leadership Training is training with a person-centred approach that enables women to recognise their leadership traits, explore the relationship between feminism, intersectionality and leadership, learn about practical tools, share good practice and exchange dialogue about specific specialist subjects to enable and initiate social change. This one-day version of the programme covers topics such as feminism, intersectionality and leadership, emotional intelligence, interrupting unconscious bias and preventing burnout.

When and Where?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this training is taking place online. Since it's taking place online, the training has been split into 2 x half-day sessions. Each participant will be sent a link upon successful registration. 

The training is taking place on:

Friday 11 March, 10am-1pm

Please note that the two sessions make up the full day of training. We are therefore expecting participants to attend both sessions.

What’s it about?

This is the second day of the Feminist Leadership training and explores the role of power and values for the leader.

Power, Relationships and Practice

In this module we explore and reflect on power and its impact on organisational values, practice and culture. Through reflective and interactive work and by sharing tools and resources, we will investigate power, empowerment and relationship management with a focus on creating social change both internally and externally to the organisation. 

Values, Organisational Culture and Transformative Change

This module analyses and explores how the values and principles of feminist leadership are reflected in your organisational practices. We will investigate and identify practical steps to aide this work and we will share tools and resources for creating transformative change and for managing conflicts, challenges and projects.
