Women in Management

Our third stage of training, Women in Management (WIM), is also Cardiff University accredited with 20 credits and has been developed specifically for women looking to acquire the supervisory and management skills they need to take up higher level public appointments.

The course allows participants to gain a range of transferable skills that both improve their employment and promotion opportunities as well as guiding them further along the path of Higher Education.

Women in Management is aimed at women who aspire to be the leaders and decision-makers in the workplace and in a range of public roles. It enables women who would not otherwise have a public voice to acquire the knowledge and confidence to apply and more importantly, to succeed.


This course covers:

  • Committee skills and charity law,


  • Social policy,


  • Career and personal development,


  • A history of women and employment,


  • The role of trade unions,


  • Management skills.

During the course Women Making a Difference work closely to offer women the chance to role-shadow a public figure to gain a first-hand experience of the position to which they aspire. Working with and observing post-holders in action gives an honest insight into what those appointments really involve.

Also free and Cardiff University accredited, Women in Management has been developed especially for women who aspire to be the leaders in their communities and decision-makers at all levels of public and political life in Wales.

Women completing all three stages have been inspired to use their qualifications, confidence, and experience to take up a variety of roles in public life.

Here's what some of our participants say about the course:

• "Having left school many years ago at the age of 15 and with no qualifications, WMAD set me on a path to higher education. I have since gained an MA in Women's Studies at Oxford and work in a number of public roles."

• "I am currently running two groups in my community and I could never have progressed without the help and support of WMAD - Thank you WMAD."

• "The WMAD project helped me to realise where I wanted to be in life and what direction I needed to travel in to reach it."

• "I stood as a candidate in the 2012 Council elections, won an award from UnLtd to research a social enterprise idea and created a blog for International Women's Day; www.inspiring-women.org.uk. This would probably not have happened had I not attended the WMAD International Women's Day event at the Senedd in 2011. WMAD has enriched my life in a multitude of ways I couldn't even begin to list."
