Introducing She Rises Virtual Day Programmes
By Rev Cham Kaur-Mann, Rev Dr Kate Coleman

She Rises Virtual Day Programmes

Over the past few months, we have been mindful of our existing programme dates.  However, protecting the health, safety and well-being of our programme attendees is our paramount concern and we have therefore arrived at the difficult decision to cancel all current in-person programmes for 2020 and to reschedule in a virtual format for 2021. 

At a time of significant disruption, the virtual programme will enable women to continue their growth, development and learning through rich content, group work and peer mentoring support. We fully appreciate that gathering together creates a different dynamic.  However, we are confident that our new approach will be just as impactful. 

So if you're a woman holding leadership responsibility within the church, public sector, corporate, entrepreneurial, academic and charity worlds, we urge you and other women leaders in your network to make an even greater impact through your leadership by participating in this ‘life-transforming experience’!

Why not join us if you (or someone you know) would like to:

  • Develop strategies to overcome self-defeating behaviours undermining the effectiveness of your leadership 
  • Discover and/or refresh your sense of purpose while illuminating your God-given potential
  • Explore personal and current leadership challenges
  • Discern your sense of vision and mission (particularly if you are in a ‘season of transition’ in life and ministry/work)
  • Discover ways in which you can make a difference
  • Develop and strengthen your leadership abilities for home, work, ministry and wherever you happen to ‘serve’ in the world
  • Receive support, peer-mentoring and encouragement from like-minded women
  • Encounter God on your journey toward more effective leadership
  • Leave with a commitment to action, accountability and support that will enable you to achieve, measure and review your progress

If you have already attended the 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership programme, you will find She Rises more interactive, process driven and richer than ever before!

We firmly believe that the best years for women leaders are still to come and we would love, 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership and She Rises to be part of that ground-breaking journey!

If rise, she rises

and if she rises...

we all rise.

(Inspired by Mark 5:41, Proverbs 31:15, Maya Angelou and Accenture!)

We are living in extraordinary times and we look forward to sharing this extraordinary journey with you and others in your network.
