Why women in leadership?

Women in Leadership events are mushrooming all over Enterprise. What happens at them and why do they matter? Sarah Knight reports. The main purpose of Women In Leadership events is to highlight that it is important to Enterprise for women to achieve. It gives younger females and new employees a chance to network with higher levels of management, hear their stories and realise the huge support network available to aspiring women, revealing the endless possibilities within Enterprise for a female employee.

To achieve 50/50 equality, Enterprise needs to focus on getting more females into management positions. These events are designed to ignite the spark for our females to take action and achieve their goals, addressing regional priorities.

The events create a buzz. Female employees come away feeling motivated and appreciated.

Mentorship increases after events. Guest speakers give a bigger picture of the company and an opportunity to develop mentor relationships with someone outside of the group or department.

U299 #ThinkLikeALeader

U2’s #ThinkLikeALeader event focused employees on mind set. Key topics were personal brand, awareness of flexible working and developing your inner leader. A head teacher from New North Academy School in London was a great inspiration on overcoming challenges. Since the event, U2 has had two female assistant manager promotions and has seen a rise in promotions overall.

U499 makes networking fun

Twice yearly ‘Women in Rental’ events at U4 focus on networking, highlighting the opportunities within rental for women, building on competencies and having fun!

U399 targets level 1s

In April, U3 hosted its first ever WIL Event for level 1 employees. The key focus points were personal brand, relocation, sales pitches and interview techniques.
