Verena Hefti FRSA supports leaders with babies to continue to develop their careers while looking after their young children through a pioneering new fellowship.
The programme is run by social enterprise Leaders Plus, and supported by an RSA Catalyst Award.
The programme combines a House of Commons event, access to inspirational role models & mentors with workshops focused on career development and support to overcome barriers such as a session with a sleep consultant.
Fellows on the programme are welcome to take along their babies to sessions if they wish to do so.
The programme is for middle & senior managers and leaders with significant childcare responsibilities for children under two. Candidates may be pregnant, on maternity/shared parental leave or have returned to work in the last year. All genders are encouraged to apply.
Together, the fellows will develop their careers and build a movement for positive change so that in the future, no parent has to decide between caring for their child and continuing to develop their leadership career.
Apply to join the fellowship here: application deadline is 11 February.
