iSE announces new Flying Start support programme for women

iSE has been successful in winning the RBS Inspiring Women in Enterprise public vote for its women-centred project Flying Start, designed to encourage and support more women into social enterprise.

Flying Start will provide bespoke, non-traditional social enterprise start-up support to 30 women in Birmingham.

It will focus on leadership, expertise, finance and networks.

Managed by Sarah Crawley, CEO of iSE, and Elizabeth Barker, the programme will build confidence and empower local women to lead successful and sustainable social businesses.

The first event in the programme — a masterclass on leadership presented by Joy Warmington, chief exec of BRAP — has just been announced. See below.
