Jonathan Sanderson delivers ‘Raising Women Leaders’ masterclass for charity partner Moonlight Trust
In partnership with our growing charity partner, Moonlight Trust, Corecom’s Managing Director, Jonathan Sanderson has delivered a ‘Raising Women Leaders’ masterclass. This is part of a Yorkshire wide project to build employability skills amongst women from ethnic minority backgrounds.
Funded by the European Social Fund and delivered by Moonlight Trust, ‘Coffee, Cake and Careers’ works with women from across Yorkshire to build confidence and resilience to achieve aspirations, as well as to challenge societal inequalities.
Jonathan delivered the masterclass, sharing tips, advice and psychological insights, drawing on his long-standing work in heralding women and challenging inequality and discrimination in the workplace and wider society. As an Ambassador and Patriot to Moonlight Trust, as well as an established partner to universities and charities across the North of England, Jonathan’s masterclass drew on his expertise and experience in working with employers, employees and candidates to embrace equality and diversity.
“I feel extremely privileged to be taking part in this groundbreaking project again. Whilst the session is billed as a masterclass, I personally gain so much insight and understanding from these sessions. Spending valuable time with women who have often faced significant traumas and show incredible resilience in their personal lives, gives me a true picture of what human nature is capable of.”
Moonlight Trust Founder, Noushin Raja, added:
“We are absolutely delighted to have Jonathan join us as a guest speaker again. His passion for facilitating women into leadership roles shines through and in previous sessions he has made a dramatic impact on changing women’s mindsets – inspiring them to overcome self-made and societal barriers, to begin their journey to work. The women we work with are really looking forward to welcoming him to the workshop”.
Moonlight Trust was set up to eradicate poverty and promote peace, love, justice and equality. Current projects include the provision of food, clothing and emergency aid alongside working to develop the provision of educational, medical and employability skills for refugees across the globe. ‘Coffee, Cake and Careers’ is now on its third intake following a 95% progression rate into paid employment, training and volunteering by its previous women candidates.
I believe D&I is paramount to the success and smooth functioning of organisations and society in general. Through D&I initiatives, we are able to draw from a wider range of backgrounds, opinions and beliefs and by cultivating an inclusive environment, we can create a workplace in which everyone can prosper at work irrespective of their circumstances which ultimately, works toward creating a more equal and accepting world.”
