Couples Support on the Leaders Plus Fellowship and the Leaders Plus NHS Fellowship

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
