In conjunction with BioPharmaChem Skillnet, CareerVision & Dr. Margaret Kennedy of Kennedy Insights, we developed a unique program (WiLD – Women in Leadership Development) aimed at uncovering and dismantling obstacles to greater female participation at a leadership level in this industry/STEM sector.
This 6 month programme is immersive and uniquely tailored to each cohort of female participants. It is informed by DEI research, by the voice of the female participants and by insights gleaned through years of working with women from all backgrounds.
A pilot programme was delivered in 2022 to women within a BioPharma organisation and the benefits were striking with 75% of participants making upward career moves, 100% stating an increased confidence in leadership potential and a programme Net Promoter Score of 92%.
A further 5 programmes are currently underway – the outputs and research data from which will be available this summer. This will provide the industry with some rich insights into how to better enable leadership participation by their talented females.
Our virtual programme delivers a rich learning experience and has been designed to maximise engagement and learning quality by following best practice virtual delivery and inclusion methods. It is limited to a minimum of 12 participants and a maximum of 16 participants to ensure that the learning experience maximises engagement and learning for the group. We want to create an impactful and rich virtual experience, building deep relationships and establishing an ongoing WiLD community within the business.
Attendance at WiLD programmes is usually part of a wider business / DEI initiative. Businesses are invited to sign up for one of our programme schedules below and we will be in touch to work out all the finer details.
If you are a Bio, Pharma, Chem, Medical Device organisation, the WiLD programme can be part-funded by BioPharmaChem Skillnet . Please see the brochure for pricing. If your organisation is not a Bio, Pharma, Chem, Medical Device organisation, please contact email@example.com for pricing.

The WiLD Programme runs over 6 months with a mix of workshops, network sessions, 1-1 coaching sessions and online surveys and psychometric assessments.
Each workshop is 3.5 hours long.
Full attendance of all 3 virtual workshops is mandatory as it is crucial to the development of each individual and for development of a strong support network. However, there are network sessions throughout the duration of the 6 months that are optional but participation is strongly encouraged.
Yes there is an open programme for individuals to sign up. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Quite a number of things; firstly, the WiLD network will be established in your organisation and the participants will sustain the network into the future, benefiting women across the organisation and your business overall. Secondly, we will provide, to the organisation leaders, rich insights into how to better enable leadership participation by their talented females. Finally, we will have a celebratory in person graduation presenting each participant with their Certificate of Completion.
