Leaders Plus

Leaders Plus is an award-winning Social Enterprise who work with individuals during maternity leave, shared parental leave and beyond to allow parents to progress in their careers whilst enjoying their young families.  Too often parents feel they have to choose between being good parents and a fulfilling leadership career. We exist to change this!

Our Leaders Plus Fellowship is a 9-month programme enabling parents with babies and young children to accelerate their careers, therefore helping to close the gender pay gap. Fellows have access to training, workshops, top mentors, a great support network and a host of events. Past fellows have come from a variety of organisations including HSBC, BBC, NHS, Salvation Army, Citizen’s Advice, and more.

We have been selected by The Observer and Nesta as one of 50 New Radical organisations and our Founder, Verena Hefti, has won the WeAreTheCity Rising Stars award for her work in setting up Leaders Plus.

In 2020 we were thrilled to be recognised as a Trialblazing Newcomer in the NatWest SE100, which highlights the UK’s most outstanding newcomers in social enterprise.
We are accredited by Social Enterprise UK and have been supported by the RSA (Royal Society for the Arts and Commerce).
