Our next generation leader programme helps women achieve their goals.
“I’m proud of the ‘next generation women leaders’ programme. It reaches high potential women early in their career and enables them to work with other successful women and learn from their wisdom and experience. It’s encouraging that women now comprise 50% of our future leader programme”.JACKIE NOAKES, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, LGAS.
We want to change the situation where the mix of women and men is unbalanced. There’s a higher proportion of women at junior levels and not enough women in middle and senior management roles. We want to help women (and men) meet the challenges of caring for their families and building careers. We want to end any unconscious bias that makes it difficult for women to achieve promotion. We’re convinced that diversity is good for future business growth, helps us serve our customers better and act with a social purpose.
We worked with the Bank of England and many other leading FTSE 100 companies to develop our next generation women programme. There’s already a number of successful women in senior positions.

The programme will not only seek to build the leadership skills of our next generation women leaders, but will help them manage the challenges that successful business women face in their everyday lives.
