The cohort of female leaders that have participated in the programme have grown in confidence and presence. It is clear that they have developed, and they continue to develop their own personal brands and are making a real difference in the working environment.

The team at WDI have created a fabulous programme that has enriched our female talent and they have also kept me updated throughout the various stages of the programme.

Tricia Halpin Chief People Officer, Masthaven Bank Limited

Integrating WDI’s Women’s Leadership Programme curriculum as a core component has been highly impactful for participants and many have referenced the learning they gained as being pivotal in achieving the next steps in their career.

Our partnership with WDI Consulting in the development and delivery of the programme significantly contributed to the programme’s success.  

I am also proud to share that, together, we have evolved the programme to welcome cis-gendered women, transgender women, transgender men, and members of the non-binary community in 2021.
