The WE Lead Food Programme is designed to equip you with the tools to make a real difference and achieve real results.
WE Leaders benefit from a ready-made network of women leaders from across the entire food value chain, enabling them to draw on knowledge and insights from other parts of the sector that they might not currently have access to. During the programme, you have trusted sounding boards to discuss whatever challenges you might want to take on in the future. This equips you with a range of entrepreneurial and leadership tools to enable you to successfully take on bigger challenges and tackle the system in a way that you might not have done before.
The WE Lead Food programme works with you to:
- explore and develop both your entrepreneurial self and your leadership self,
- define your vision for a more sustainable food system,
- devise a plan to realise your vision.
The programme is made up of interactive sessions designed to unlock and develop your entrepreneurial mindset and capabilities in the context of leading in the complex and changing food industry.
We will work with you to challenge and progress your development plan. Throughout the process, you will have access to an expert group of industry, academic and policy specialists, a cross-sector industry leaders’ network and the tools to leverage both entrepreneurial and collective leadership ways of working.
The programme will take place online over a 7-week period. This includes three full days, and sessions most Tuesday and Thursday afternoons during these 7 weeks. An overview of the programme is available here. Full details and logistics will be provided to applicants offered a place on the programme."
