A bespoke training course is taking place on Tue 1 and Wed 2 August 2017 as part of a joint venture between RADA in Business and Mums in Technology, the UK’s first baby-friendly coding school. The programme is supported by techUK. The training will give eight women the communications skills required to have more impact and influence over stakeholders in the workplace after returning to work, supporting them on their path to a successful career.

Excitingly, Mums in Technology is offering a 50% scholarship discount off the course cost supported by sponsors to all eight attendees, to help women realise their leadership aspirations. This will leave a remaining amount of £1,100 for the successful applicants to contribute.

Scholarship applications are open until Fri 21 July 2017, with the successful candidates being announced by the Mums in Technology Selection Committee the week commencing Mon 24 July 2017.

Being Bold for Change at WOW Festival

Posted by (in Miscellaneous)

RADA in Business had an exciting and successful week celebrating International Women's Day, Omniwomen UK and WOW Festival last week as our communications skills training helped women to 'Be Bold For Change' in the workplace.

On Wednesday 8 March, we joined companies and individuals across the world to mark International Women's Day (IWD). Our social media campaign shared pledges from delegates, tutors and the team in the office, showing how they planned to put RADA in Business training into practice to 'Be Bold For Change' - the theme of this year's IWD. Both women and men joined the initiative, with pledges covering many different themes: speaking up and getting your voice heard, standing tall whatever your height, projecting gravitas and authenticity, and empowering others to achieve their ambitions.
