A helping hand for women to prosper in their own business - The Redditch Standard

A helping hand for women to prosper in their own business

Redditch Editorial 9th Mar, 2022   0

A PROGRAMME to support aspiring businesswomen in Warwickshire is returning this spring after proving to be a major success.

The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce has opened applications for its 22in22 Women in Business Mentoring Programme after the success of 21in21 that began last March.

The Chamber is now looking for applicants to come forward to be paired with successful business leaders who can help them move up the career ladder or grow their own company.

Keely Hancox, operations manager at Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber, said: “We took the decision a year ago to launch the 21in21 programme because, time and again, we heard from women who had gone on to be successful saying how they’d wished they’d had a mentor at an earlier stage in their career.

“The programme exceeded all our expectations and the feedback we’ve had has been amazing; 21in21 has made a genuine difference to people’s lives.

“For some, it has been about profile raising or boosting sales, for others it has been about offering support and confidence building.

“After such positive feedback, it is only right that the programme evolves into 22in22 and we look forward to hearing from more women who can benefit from the programme and seeing them benefit from our fabulous mentors who are handpicked from a range of sectors.”

Applications are open until Wednesday 23rd March at 5pm
