Couples Support on the Leaders Plus Fellowship

Our award-winning Fellowship Programme is for ambitious parents who believe you shouldn't have to sacrifice progressing your career or spending time with your young children. 

As well as support from a courageous community of peers who are also juggling work and parenthood and expert guidance from your own dedicated career mentor, our Fellows  access a variety of masterclasses to help with some of the practical challenges that arise day-to-day. One such workshop is dedicated to supporting you as a couple and covers:

  • The latest research of what works for couples who combine ambitious careers and young children
  • A chance to explore together what works for you, what you both need, and how you can navigate potential barriers
  • Opportunity to hear from other couples who have successfully combined dual careers about what works
