Funding Opportunity – Women’s Leadership Development

Women & Leadership International is administering a national initiative to support the development of female leaders across the UK’s aerospace sector.   A pool of scholarship funding is currently available to women working in the aerospace sector to assist participation in one of two leadership development courses.

Interest in the last round of funding nine months ago was strong, and as a result of feedback and additional community consultation, the current fee-support opportunity provides a potential empowerment pathway for both junior and mid-level women through their participation in either the Leading Edge or Executive Ready course.

Chief executives of the FTSE 100 are still 94% male, and almost one in four companies in the broader FTSE 350 still have only one woman on their board. Unleashing the full potential of women in the workplace could be worth £23 billion to the economy, according to research. 

The campaign is providing women with grants of up to £1,000 to enable participation in one of two leadership development programs: Leading Edge (for junior and aspiring leaders and managers) and Executive Ready (for mid-level leaders and managers).

‘We are a small family owned and run business that the introduction of new measures by BF would have caused severe financial hardship.  I was recommended to ask BBGA for advice which they instantly gave even though we were not members.  They attended various meetings by my side, took the situation to a higher level within the Government department and helped me achieve a satisfactory outcome.  I wasn’t pressured to become a member but what became apparent was their genuine desire to help resolve aviation issues for the better of the community.  This association covers almost every aspect of the industry, has representation on the majority of decision making panels and achieves results by either diluting possible harmful legislation or stopping it altogether.  Its members receive updates in real time often leaving other associations to ‘cut and paste’ BBGA releases some time later.’
