In order to identify the skills needed for double disadvantaged women to pursue leadership positions and increase their leadership skills, the partnership will develop the Women Making Waves Competence Framework. It will analyse the current initiatives and projects promoting female leadership among the target group. This will ensure that the Women Making Waves Training Programme and Leader Circles ™ are designed in such a way that is of the highest benefit to the women participating in the training.
You can find the competence framework HERE!

IO2 Women Making Waves training programme – Enhancing Female Leadership Skills
In the Women Making Waves Training Programme will be developed aiming to foster female leadership skills and strength and build double disadvantage women’s (NEET, migrant, disabled, in early career stages, women returning to work after a long absence or those pursuing a new career path) self-belief and confidence for employability. The training programme will aim to address the needs to help their career progression.
IO5 Policymakers Guide “Women Making Waves – Enhancing Female Leadership Skills”
The partnership will therefore develop a Policymakers Guide targeting policymakers, businesses, formal and non-formal educational institutions, migrant and women support organisations and other stakeholders across Europe. The Guide sets out to emphasise the need of having more women in leadership positions to use the available human resources in Europe to its fullest potential and to increase the competitiveness of its internal market.
IO3 Leader Circles™
The CirclesTM are comprised of 4-5 mentees in a group who meet with a facilitator for 3-4 sessions, each lasting up to 4 hours (Annex “Circles Methodology”). The goal and innovation of the CirclesTM methodology is that the mentees do not only learn from their facilitator but mostly from each other in order to achieve a mutual objective which, in the case of Women Making Waves, is aimed at increasing women’s confidence, self-awareness and knowledge of employability, business and leadership opportunities by sharing their stories with each other.
