Free Project Management Training for Women in Fisheries

The Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust, in partnership with UK Women in Fisheries, is offering five free places on The Oxford Women’s Leadership Development Programme from Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.

This 6-week online course offers a space to critically examine, acknowledge, and develop your leadership style and skills within a community of like-minded professionals. The course will help you to gain an understanding of the challenges female leaders face within the workplace and explore the unique strengths that will enable you to lead, negotiate, and influence others. Discover how to analyse and navigate cultural dimensions, and expand your mentorship capabilities in order to empower others to pursue leadership roles. Based on an overarching programme framework of self-acceptance, self-management, and self-development, you’ll gain the skills and confidence to broaden your impact and realise your full potential as a leader.

Applicants for the Fishmonger’ grant do not need to have formal qualifications, but they must have knowledge of and experience within the fishing and seafood sector. Applicants should also express an interest in supporting fisheries management, with preference given to those who currently manage or would like to support the development of fishing associations. The grant forms part of Fishmongers’ ambitions to support the development of fishing and seafood associations that address regional and national opportunities and challenges.

In order to complete the programme, you’ll need a current email account and access to a computer and the internet, as well as a PDF Reader. You may need to view Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, and read and create documents in Microsoft Word or Excel.

To apply, please email by 26th February 2023.
