She Leads Change aims to be inclusive and diverse in our recruitment of programme participants. As a social enterprise, we try to keep our offering as financially accessible as possible, whilst still needing to cover our costs. We have adopted a tiered pricing model, using corporate rates to help subsidise the cost for individual self-funded places. Even so, inevitably not everyone who wishes to take part can afford to do so. So we offer sponsored places.
We’re looking for recommendations and applications for these places from women who work within under-represented or under-voiced communities, who may not be able to draw on personal or employer-funded means to participate. Women who have a strong influence that would benefit
highly from the programme and who could amplify those benefits back to their community.
We will offer them a fully funded place on the She Leads Change Open Programme. They will be part of an extraordinary group of women from diverse backgrounds working together to build confidence, courage and powerful connection. Together they will find ways to develop their authenticity, sense of purpose and resilience to drive positive change.
The selection process for sponsored places includes our standard application form plus a short phone interview. The number of funded places available varies between cohort and depends directly on the level of financial support we receive.

We are also keen to hear from any philanthropists, foundations, corporates and individuals who might be willing to sponsor a place for a quality candidate otherwise unable to self-fund. Where we have such places available, we offer these to candidates based on financial need, calibre of applicant, social purpose, diversity & inclusion, and commitment to the programme. Previous participants have found the programme to fast-track their social impact, boost confidence and network, and be transformative in their life outcomes and achievements.
