Despite progress, women continue to be under-represented in positions of power and leadership in Government, Business, and public life. This picture is even worse for BAME women, LGBTQ+ women, disabled women, and women who experience additional inequality. We will only be able to truly address all of the issues we face as a society when we have diverse representatives that reflect the communities we live in.
LeadHerShip aims to ensure that women become better represented in such decision-making roles and provide women with a platform so that their voices are heard, and they are inspired to see themselves as future leaders.
There are three LeadHerShip programmes. Chwarae Teg will provide young women with shadowing opportunities in national politics at the Assembly, local politics at various local councils, and in business following female leaders at a variety of Welsh businesses.
