Pankhurst Trust’s “Some Women Coaching” Project [May 2019]
The Pankhurst Trust Some Women Coaching initiative offers free coaching to women who want to further develop their leadership skills. This is aimed at women who are currently in or have previously had a leadership role or position, whether at work or in a voluntary capacity. The organisers are particularly keen to ensure that both coaches and clients represent the women of Greater Manchester.
We are seeking women that will make a difference to society by moving to positions of power or helping others to do so.Source: Pankhurst Trust
