We need more women in Leadership roles. We need more women engaged in the civic and public life. We need your voice being heard!

The First Step is a tailored training programme to empower women to recognise the positive difference they can make to civic and public life. The programme will give the opportunity to 100 women living in Northern Ireland to increase their sense of self-worth, develop their leadership skills, learn how to work together to effect real and long-lasting change and to rise above and beyond their barriers and their backgrounds.

The First Step programme is the Groundwork NI approach to support women to increase their networks and gain a better understanding of the local landscape and how their skills can help them empower themselves and their communities. We will do that by delivering a leadership programme, tailored to you, that will use immersive learning and experiential mentoring. 

Are you a woman over the age of 17, living in Northern Ireland?

Join us this Autumn and get the opportunity to learn form experienced leaders and mentors.
