Women: Transforming Digital Leadership 
April-June 2020
A leadership development programme for women, in partnership with BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.

Following a very successful 'Inspiration Day' for women digital leaders in October 2019, BCS are partnering with Empowering You to launch a unique “Women: Transforming Digital Leadership” programme in April-June 2020, which aims to empower women across all sectors to succeed in digital transformation and tech leadership. Participants are encouraged from any country, although fluency in english is expected. 


This includes women working in digital, innovation and transformation from diverse industries; ranging from Tech firms to Charities, from Life and Health Sciences to the Digital Arts, from Agri-Foods to FMCG and Social Enterprises. 


Who is this programme aimed at?

  • Women in digital or technical roles who aspire to leadership.

  • Women newly promoted looking to grow their leadership edge.

  • Women who do not have a traditional specialist IT background, but who possess the talent and inspiration to lead digital and business change in their organisation or sector.

  • No previous knowledge of IT is assumed.

Participants join a like-minded cohort of 16-24 women and follow a journey of pre-work, group workshops, coaching, self-reflection and project collaboration over a 3 month period:

  • April 22nd-23rd   

    • A 2-day group workshop focusing on self-awareness, strengths, confidence, influencing others, leadership skills and ​networking .

    • The cohort will start work on a team collaboration project to benefit the Women in IT/Tech community, which will continue through May and June.

  • May 28th 

    • A 1-day group workshop focusing on optimising your personal impact as a leader​

  • Through April and June participants will each receive 3 x 1 hour coaching sessions via Skype/phone to support their own unique objectives and help to embed  desired behaviour changes.

  • In June (date and venue TBD) the cohort will attend a networking and graduation workshop and present the results of their collaboration project to a wider audience.
