Women Who Do

June 1, 2013 10:11 am

An exciting new programme offering free support to women in Ashfield & Mansfield who want to explore the possibility of working for themselves, or develop a new business idea, is being launched this month.


The ‘Women Who Do’ programme gives women access to a range of support, including one-to-one mentoring, expert help with creating a personalised development plan and free confidence building workshops delivered by women for women. The project launch takes place on Friday 14 June 2013 at the Summit Centre, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, NG17 7LL from 10am to 1pm and includes lunch, networking opportunities and inspiring speakers.

Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration at Mansfield District Council, Councillor Kate Allsop, said: “The Women Who Do programme aims to support women who have a business idea they want to develop. It is a great opportunity for women to explore new avenues and bring about change in their lives.

“Using expert help, the project offers one-to-one support to women to nurture and develop their strengths and skills and to break down barriers. I would urge any woman who is interested in working for herself to come along to the launch of this life changing programme. All the support is absolutely free and in confidence.”

Ashfield District Council Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Cllr Warren Nuttall added: “It is a pleasure to be able to work in partnership to bring this fantastic opportunity to the women of Ashfield & Mansfield. The project is a great initiative aimed at encouraging entrepreneurialism within the female community and an opportunity not to be missed.”

The ‘Women Who Do’ project is part of the Enterprise Academy for Women, which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund in conjunction with Ashfield & Mansfield District Councils.
