Find the courageous leader in you

Wednesday 6th March 2019
9am – 5pm
London

This event was created to help women find “the courageous leader in themselves“. 

Listen to international leaders talk about their experiences and share their learning with you.

Meet women and men who have negotiated, navigated, and emerged as courageous leaders.

Amongst the line-up, you will hear from CEOs, entrepreneur founders, mentors and coaches.

We want you to invest in yourself, take the learning to propel your career. Feel good by attending as 100% of your entry fee (a voluntary donation of £70) will go to fund an education project for adolescent girls run by the charity Plan International UK.

The project helps underprivileged girls in Zimbabwe continue with their education.

You will help fund the next generation of women leaders.

First 10 delegates will qualify for an online negotiation course – run by MakeYourAsk.

Every £1 donated to Plan International UK will be matched by £10 from DFID

How your ticket will be helping girls in Zimbabwe

We’re thrilled to be supporting Plan International UK’s brand new project helping 21,780 out-of-school, poor and marginalised girls in Zimbabwe continue their education.

Girls in Zimbabwe are given the same chances for an education as boys – while they are little. But adolescence has a huge impact. Girls start to be held back by beliefs about their ability and value. They are at physical risk from harmful attitudes and practices, like harassment and early marriage. 28% of girls in Zimbabwe will never make it to secondary school, most likely losing their chance for a better future forever.

By attending Courageous Leaders, you will be helping 21,780 girls in Zimbabwe: 

  • have access to quality learning opportunities, in or out of school
  • have access to vocational training in relevant skills to build new livelihoods
  • have access to safe, fairly-paid living through work or their own small business

And therefore empower them to lift themselves out of a life of poverty to a future of opportunity.

Buy your ticket now to be part of something incredible!

Every £1 donated to Plan International UK will be matched by £10 from DFID
