Women Leaders Partner with Cranfield Executive Development

As part of the School of Management at Cranfield University, CED has a strong heritage in delivering women’s leadership education.  

Cranfield launched the first major women’s management development programme in 1986, and since then over 2000 women have participated in one of our women’s programmes. Since 1999 Cranfield has also compiled the annual Female FTSE Board Report which examines trends in women’s representation on FTSE boards and research on underlying contributory factors.

As Women Leader’s primary focus is to recognise outstanding women, promote and strengthen women’s leadership, and support gender equality and diversity, our values seem to closely align with those of Cranfield Executive Development and we are proud to support their programmes for delivering women’s leadership education.

The alignment between our two organisations is most closely reflected through the Women’s Leadership Programme, designed to inspire senior women to navigate organisational challenges to reach the highest levels in their careers. CED are passionate about empowering women to succeed, and we are delighted to be partnering with them as an organisation that shares our pride and passion in women’s achievements.

“Cranfield’s long heritage in championing diversity and women’s leadership in business aligns naturally with the work of Women’s Leaders UK. We are pleased to be working together, fostering our shared values and promoting the success of women and their achievements in the workplace” 

Dr. Deirdre Anderson – Director of the Gender, Leadership and Inclusion Centre, Cranfield University Programme Director of The Women’s Leadership Programme, CED.

“Women’s Leaders UK is delighted to be partnering with Cranfield Executive Development. We see first hand the influence that leadership education has in empowering and inspiring women to thrive. Working together, we strengthen our networks, amplify our impact and create more opportunities for women to be even more successful”

Dr. Julie Mills OBE DL – CEO of Women Leaders UK
