Gender equality charity, Chwarae Teg and GE Aviation Wales have come together again to celebrate the benefits of empowering female staff as leaders of the future.
The world renowned aviation business held a graduation event to recognise the achievements of female staff who have attained their Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) awards, which form part of Chwarae Teg’s wider career development programme.
This is another example of the strong partnership between the two organisations, which work together closely on promoting female engagement in careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. An example last October was when GE Aviation Wales hosted one of Chwarae Teg’s ‘Not Just For Boys’ events.
The celebratory graduation event saw Cerys Furlong, Chief Executive, Chwarae Teg speaking to graduates and presenting them with their ILM certificates.
Chwarae Teg’s Agile Nation 2 career development programme is fully funded by the European Social Fund through Welsh Government. It is a unique and inspirational initiative, helping working women develop knowledge, confidence and skills for team leading or managerial roles. The dedicated team at Chwarae Teg provide expert coaching, mentoring and training designed to empower women to achieve their ambitions.
