Future Female Business Leaders Programme

On Tuesday 26th Feb 2019, the First Minister for Scotland launched the Future Female Business Leaders Programme.

The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced £100,000 of new funding for an initiative aimed at driving entrepreneurship among females in Scotland. 

The Scottish Chambers of Commerce will partner with the Association of Scottish Business Women to deliver the 'Future Female Business Leaders' programme under the banner of #WomenWhoLead

With some of the most recognisable and successful Scottish businesswomen leading the way to developing, and growing, women-led businesses and women in leadership positions, the goal is to enable everyone to reach their potential & to grasp the business opportunities in Scotland & internationally. 

Supported by the First Minister, #WomenWhoLead will specifically work to tackle the key challenges that face women when it comes to growing their business or advancing their professional careers. The programme will provide participants with an unparalleled network of experienced women in business who will mentor, guide and support the growth of women-led businesses and senior women in the corporate and public sector.
