What is Leaders Plus?
Leaders Plus is a social enterprise enabling talented women and men with young children to continue to develop their leadership careers. Too often parents feel they have to choose between being a good parent and a fulfilling leadership career, we help change this.
We offer high quality training, mentoring, peer support and access to inspiring role models. We aim to build a positive movement for change so that new parents can thrive in leadership roles. Our workshops focus on how to continue to develop your career while looking after young children and managing your work life balance.
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
