The Becoming Journey- Women's Development programme

The Becoming Journey is for women in the second half of their life and career. Our focus is on enabling women to address the organisational and personal barriers that typically interrupt or stall their career success. We equip them to achieve their potential by giving them tools to take control and address these challenges.

The Becoming Journey is for women who: 
  • Want to develop into and accept the leader and woman they are, not be criticized for who or what they are not.
  • Feel stuck in their leadership journey and want someone alongside to help them unstick, so they can progress further as a leader.
  • Are moving to a new role or transitioning upwards and want to take control of their own career path.
  • Are taking on significant management or leadership roles and want to effectively navigate the challenges faced by women at this level in the workplace.

To see more information and sign up, please visit the Becoming website.
