WLN update

The Education and Training Foundation is both a proud sponsor and founding member of the Women’s Leadership Network. Below is an update from the Network about their latest activities including regional network meetings and their annual conference in London on 11 July.


This is an exciting time for the Women’s Leadership Network (WLN). We would like to share our news of how the WLN is changing to support women who are and want to be leaders in the Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning sector and how we can promote equality and inclusivity across the sector.

In 2018 we re-launched the WLN with a revitalised commitment promoting intersectional gender equality and to ensuring the sector benefits from the diverse, transformational and talented leaders it needs to achieve a more prosperous, socially just and equitable society.

See what we are up to.
