We’re delighted to welcome 16 learners, which include a majority of people with a mixed ethnic background, to ‘Women’s Leadership Academy’, a new programme delivered in partnership with the Women’s Business Station.

Learners will gain a deeper understanding of leadership theories, hear from successful social entrepreneurs, and build a network of peers who aim to lead in community-focused organisations.

Through practitioner-led, peer learning, participants will shape what outcomes they want to achieve, whether that be the establishment of a new charity or social enterprise or creating impact through an existing organisation. They will access key tools to make real change in the areas most important to them. 

This impactful programme is fully funded by the Scottish Government through the Community Learning and Development Fund.

Alexander Bruns, Programme Officer at the Social Enterprise Academy said:

“With this 10-day leadership programme, women in Dundee will be given the opportunity to develop their self and community leadership. Each learner will have the chance to go on and change the shape of their lives, neighbourhoods, and communities. I am so excited to see what develops as a result of this programme!”

Good luck to all of the inspiring change makers who have started their learning journey! We can’t wait to see how this experience supports you and your goals.
