News from SSEA featuring W@W.
The WEA’S Women@Work project provides training and networking opportunities for women across the Highlands, Argyll and Moray. They work to address the under representation of women in decision-making which affects everyone, and to increase their full participation in rural development and opportunities.
WEA W@W Project Coordinator and SEA Leadership participant Frances Powell said:
In 2010 we were pleased to join with the Social Enterprise Academy to host a leadership programme for 12 exceptional women from across our network.
Karen Darke provided an inspiring and stimulating course and we all benefited in many ways – from increased self awareness to discovering the value of different perspectives and approaches.
Through our efforts, laughter and occasional tears, and through specific tools like Action Learning Sets, as well as from various innovative programme activities we shared – we learned to take risks and trust ourselves and one another. We all agreed that this was a unique, valued and memorable learning process.
