Breaking the glass ceiling

The AllBright Academy is offering 20 FREE places to women across Liverpool Wavertree for its freshly launched programmes to help all women gain the skills, confidence and network to help achieve career ambitions.Academy

The AllBright Academy is designed to support working women, whatever stage of their career journey they’re at to build resilience, manage the work-life balance and how to own a room. It is completely free to join.

Over 50 inspiring women have agreed to share their expertise, from business leaders to athletes, including design entrepreneur Cath Kidston MBE, Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Farrah Storr, GB Olympic gold medallist Crista Cullen and Propercorn founder Cassandra Stavrou.

There are two specialist streams led by academy co-founders, Debbie Wosskow OBE and Anna Jones: one for female founders, and the other on smashing the glass ceiling, whatever industry you’re in.

Debbie’s course gets into the nitty gritty of running a business, from taxes and sales to building and promoting a brand, while Anna’s equips women with the skills to ask for what they want at work, with modules on communication styles and how to negotiate to get what you want.

Both programmes start on September 10 and run online for 10 weeks. All the content is accessed online, wherever you are. You’ll just need to put aside three to four hours each week to complete the course.

Applications are open till the end of July, but it is worth applying as soon as you can by clicking here.

You will be asked for some information on your background and why you’d like to join, then enter the code Luciana20 when prompted to be considered for one of the 20 places for the constituency.
