MIDLANDS TUC WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP - 2020 PROGRAMME
Midlands TUC runs a Women in Leadership course to help empower more women trade unionists to step into leadership roles and continue to create positive changes in their workplaces, their union and in society. The course includes public speaking, leadership styles, communication skills and research projects looking at equality in the workplace. The course involves eight days of classroom learning, as well as project work in-between classes.
The group will also have the opportunity to meet and network with influential women trade union leaders and decision-makers, as well as get to know like-minded women from different unions and to play an active role in the TUC Women Chainmakers' Festival.
The course will include a visit to parliament to meet members of the Parliamentary Labour Party to discuss how to increase opportunities for women in work, politics and wider society. The programme of the course can be viewed on the TUC Midlands website.
Branches are invited to nominate female members as they will need to contribute towards the costs of the course. Nominations and any queries to the Midlands Regional Office.
