Women in Action

Women's Empowerment Project

Women in Action is a new free coaching and training programme for personal development and community change

Free confidence & empowerment coaching for women in Cardiff

Women in Action is a new FREE coaching programme for women’s personal development and community change.

Our intention is to support women to stand up and make a difference.

Empowering women who are or who want to become community activists and community leaders.

We would love you to join our free coaching and empowerment sessions.  Our aim is to improve your confidence, self esteem and your sense of self agency.

We will also help you to get involved in making things better in your community and engage in any campaigns that are important to you.

Why is this project needed?

There is an essential skills gap within grassroots activism for women activists and volunteers. This is particularly noticeable amongst marginalised groups and in deprived communities.

This project’s fundamental aim is to strengthen, enhance and increase women’s engagement in community (public) life.

This will be achieved using skills transfer, using positive female role models and coaching for confidence and women’s leadership.

Who would we like to benefit from the programme?

This is a women’s empowerment programme and it is aimed at:

  1. women who are already active in their communities as volunteers or in campaigns
  2. women who would like to be more active in their communities
  3. women who want support to become community leaders
  4. women feel they would benefit from some coaching for confidence and self-esteem 
We are especially looking for women from disadvantaged communities or those who have experienced personal disadvantage or discrimination.
We want to invite a wide, diverse range of women to our workshops so please contact us for how to join a session.
 

How will the sessions and workshops be delivered?

It is critically important that we co-design and co-produce the programme from the start.

As such we’ve been running workshops to seek input from women who are already active in their communities or community life. This will be happening during July and August.

We will be using women’s input to shape and craft the sessions. However, the most important element of the programme will be the women in the room.

Our programme will be delivered using one off workshops on specific themes including:

  1. Supporting women asylum seekers and refugees to become institutional advocates
  2. How to speak and influence in formal meetings and public speaking
  3. How local policy works and how to engage more effectively with policy makers

We will also be delivering coaching sessions which will focus on the following themes:

  1. Coaching for confidence
  2. Coaching to achieve personal change and growth
  3. Coaching to support collaboration on campaigns or community groups
  4. Coaching to facilitate community change
