Welcome to Leaders Plus
Leaders Plus is a social enterprise working with individuals during maternity leave, shared parental leave, and beyond to progress in their careers whilst enjoying their young families.
Too often parents feel they have to choose between being a good parent and a fulfilling leadership career. We exist to change this.
Our award-winning Fellowship Programme supports Leaders with Babies and young children. Our Fellows have come from employers such as the BBC, NHS, HSBC, Action Tutoring, and the Salvation Army. We welcome applications from fathers and mothers.
We have been selected by The Observer and Nesta as one of 50 New Radical organisations and our Founder, Verena Hefti, has won the WeAreTheCity Rising Stars award for her work in setting up Leaders Plus.
In 2020 we were thrilled to be recognised as a Trailblazing Newcomer in the NatWest SE100, which highlights the UK's most outstanding newcomers in social enterprise.
