Global Women's Leadership Programme

The Cass Global Women’s Leadership Programme seeks to inspire, equip and connect women who are, or want to become resilient, inclusive, ambitious, brave, confident, responsible, authentic and thriving leaders.

We support women who want to grow and are seeking their unique version of success; a success that can go well beyond corporate or entrepreneurial leadership to include community involvement, mentoring and other initiatives.

Our programme has three main pillars:

  • We coordinate scholarships for bright, high potential women to study at Cass
  • We organise events with inspiring speakers to equip and empower women for leadership
  • We connect women by nurturing networks for their success.

With this, we help equip women with the tools, skills and insights to help achieve their career goals. While we are fundamentally focused on Cass women – past, current and future – we also build strong ties with businesses, societies, research institutions and regulatory bodies as we know these create an ecosystem essential for women’s success as leaders. If you are passionate about advancing your career and empowering women for future leadership roles through the supportive nature of the programme, apply for one of our Global Women's Leadership Scholarships. You will be provided with mentoring and access to unique networking opportunities along with a 50% fee scholarship.
