Overview

Women who are in leadership roles are making waves in housing, but it’s clear that it needs a wider, more diverse range of views and opinions from different voices.

Our Confident Communication for Women in Housing course aims to join exceptional women from across the housing sector for high impact peer to peer learning that promotes a healthy culture which values women and gives the confidence to come forward.

Through our unique training course, future and current female leaders from across the housing sector will join together to learn new skills in communication and presentation, helping them become engaging, powerful speakers.

Through practical examples specific to women in housing, develop and embody the essential skills needed to create impact and communicate with confident credibility.
