Kent County Council announces female leadership programme
Kent County Council will be delivering a new leadership programme to try and encourage women to apply for top roles within the organisation.

According to Human Resources magazine, the council will work with a development firm to make the five-day leadership programme available to 12 female managers this month.

These women have been selected because of leadership potential they have demonstrated and it is hoped that the scheme will provide them with further skills for career advancement.

Peggy Lawlor, programme director and head of management and development at Kent County Council, said many people think women are reluctant to apply for managerial roles "because they lack confidence or they make personal choices not to progress based on work demands and the impact that may have on personal life".

Meanwhile, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development believes that staff training must remain a priority for firms during the recession.
