Who are Leaders Plus?

We are a group of parents who want to continue their leadership careers while enjoying caring for young children. We believe in gender equality in leadership roles and that everyone should be empowered to find their own approach to blending careers and family lives. We support each other through high quality peer support, inspirational development activities and providing space to think.

Mentors & work shadowing

We offer high quality mentoring to Parent Leaders by experienced HR professionals. Work shadowing provides access to senior leaders and enables Parent Leaders to consider unwritten rules of career development.

Safe space: high quality peer support

Parent Leaders support each other through peer coaching and are actively invested in each others’ success. This gives new parents a safe space to think about their next steps.

Inspirational events & transformative development

Inspiring events and professional development give Parent Leaders access to inspirational models and evidence based practice. Most opportunities are baby inclusive, breaking the paradigm that it is ok to develop professionally while caring for small children.

"It was so good to get a big group together of mothers and fathers passionate about being good parents but also continue in leadership careers - and so inspiring to hear from some of the people running the country who have done just that!"
Bea Stevenson Mum of two, Head of Social & Emotional Learning Family Links

"This is the kind of event necessary to start the conversation about parents in leadership, how to make it happen, give encouragement and start improving the status quo. A very important event."

Kathrin Madl Mum to a baby, HR Business Partner at Moody's Corporation

"Leaders with Babies was a fantastic opportunity to learn from women who are already leaders and showing that you can make it work as part of being a mother - inspiring and motivating!"
