Meet our team


Every person has what they need to lead – both within and beyond She Leads Change.

In our team we believe relationship is resolution: we need to model the change we lead and the best way forward, is together.

We have an ‘open’ team – people join from our participant base to continue to grow skills, experiment with new ideas and build important relationships.  Our community is supported by a core team and a stakeholder advisory panel.

We work to find the gold in each of us and create the spaces for it to shine.

Our Stakeholder Advisory Panel

She Leads Change is at a pivotal point in its evolution. We recognise the challenges that confront the world are multi-faceted and complex, and include lack of capacity in terms of healthy, whole-hearted and collective leadership as well as insufficient capability to address systemic change.

We would like now, to scale the impact that we’ve seen our leadership programmes already having and begin to consider what else we may do to support a more beautiful, sustainable world. This is why we have established a Stakeholder Advisory Panel.

The primary purpose of this Advisory Panel is to provide valuable insights and input as we develop strategically and programmatically. We wish to invite ‘critical friends’ on our evolutionary journey, to ensure we are able to optimise our impact in service of cultivating the leaders our highest hopes know are possible; the leaders the world now needs.

What our PARTICIPANTS say:

Effective concepts and practical approaches to leading change

She Leads Change helped me to explore how my own identity as a ‘leader’, impacted my ability to effect culture change and introduced me to some effective concepts and practical approaches to leading change in an open and collaborative way.

- Abby Crawford, Spring 2020

She Leads Change was transformational

She Leads Change was transformational for me. I went into it full of thoughts like ‘I’m not doing enough’ and ‘I’m stuck’ to finishing the course and realising I am in a wider collective of incredible progressive people who want change, I am part of that and have a part to play.

- Nadia Shaikh, Autumn 2020

An eye-opening journey of self-discovery

She Leads Change offers an eye-opening journey of self-discovery surrounded by brilliant, passionate women and thoughtful and supportive programme leaders.

- Helen Doran, Autumn 2020

Really meaningful leadership work

She Leads Change isn’t just about doing better leadership, but being a better leader.  I highly recommend the programme for anyone who is open to doing really meaningful leadership work with openness, honesty and humility.

- Cat Sneath, Autumn 2020

A fantastic opportunity

It has been a fantastic opportunity to connect and work with other amazing women, and also to explore our own personal challenges and identify ways we can be our best selves and support others around us.
