Mums in Tech have launched their returners programme, ‘Return with Impact and Influence’, designed and operated in partnership with RADA in Business and supported by techUK.
Launching 1 August, the programme focuses on developing the confidence and leadership skills of women returning to the workforce after career breaks.
The aim of the programme is to help women face the challenges that await them when they return to work by developing tools, skills and strategies to ensure that they are not only able to grow and perform in the work environment, but to help them become the best versions of themselves.
With the help of sponsors, Mums in Tech are able to over 50 per cent scholarships – worth £1,100 – for the inaugural programme.
Speaking about the programme, June Angelides, founder of Mums in Technology, said, “Looking back at my career, I can think of numerous instances where having the tools to confidently voice my opinions or ask for a pay rise would have invaluable.”
“After kids, it’s normal for your confidence to take a dip, regardless of your level of seniority.”
“We want to make sure we are seeing more women heading for the boardroom and taking up their seats.”
Jacqueline de Rojas, president of techUK, who are supporting this endeavor, said, “Who wouldn’t want to learn how to access confidence, create positive energy and assume a position of command in the blink of an eye?”
“These are just a few of the practical techniques I took away from my recent ‘RADA in Business’ experience.”
“For women returners, this course created by Mums in Technology, RADA and techUK, is invaluable.”
“I am so struck by the words of Christine Lagarde: “Powerful women don’t get there by accident.”
Mums in Technology trains women in foundational coding skills and tech literacy during the maternity period within a child-inclusive, parent-friendly learning environment.
By removing childcare obstacles and challenging cultural perceptions of motherhood, Mums in Technology empower women to envision new possibilities for their futures, while diversifying the talent pool and driving economic growth.
