Aspire2lead: December Update

Aspire2lead is a project part-funded by the European Social Fund that supports women in employment and SMEs across the York and North Yorkshire LEP area.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the aspire2lead (A2L) team!

December was a busy month for the team with lots of collaboration and growth within the team, delivery partners and the programme itself! During December we were able to have a virtual meeting with the entire force behind A2L with Aspire-igen, Yorkshire In Business and Beyond 2030. In the meeting we discussed what each of our strands offered, who can benefit from the support on offer and timelines for delivery. We made sure that each partner was aware of what each of us offered so we could collaboratively work together to offer a holistic approach and the best outcome for all participants.

The team also had a chance to meet with our Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) representative Hannah Beever. Not only was this a great chance to get informed about what else was going on in the York/North Yorkshire region but it also gave us a chance to promote the project to the whole area and get involved in more activities to enhance our delivery as well!

The team have also been busy attending seminars and conferences such as the North Yorkshire Learning Providers Conference where we have been able to raise awareness of the project and collaborate research, resources and ideas about women in all industries.

During the last few weeks we have also been recruiting for new roles within the team! We are interviewing candidates for our Key Worker role very soon and the deadline for the Organisational Transformation Worker and the Aspiring Young Women Trainer close on the 8th of January. We are super excited to meet the new members of our team so click here if you are interested!

Finally, most of our strands are now up and running , we are actively taking participants and have started many of our avenues of support. If you or someone you know would be interested in receiving free support, tools and knowledge to promote gender equality in the workplace, please have a look at our project page or email the address below!
