We take a collaborative approach in delivering Making Work Work – for Women Returners, on which we partner with Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland.
Here are a number of ways in which your organisation could support women returners to make work work:
Can you help us find women participants? Do you work with women or have women in your networks who are eligible for Making Work Work?
Can you help us spread the word?
We are keen to spread the word about the incredible talent pool of women returners. The Making Work Work team is available to speak to organisations about women returners. We can help your team reflect, improve and share practice on women returners, flexible working and gender equality through focus groups, training and workshops.
Your organisation may be able to support our women as they leave our programme, for example through job opportunities, further education or training, additional employability support, or volunteering.
Partnering with Business in the Community and Volunteer Vision, we develop corporate mentoring programmes supporting our women returners on their journey. If your employees wish to use their employee volunteering time to support women returners, or your CSR programme would like to support the mentoring of women returners to return to work commensurate with their skills and potential, get in touch!
