Jo Cox Women in Leadership

The Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme

Want to take on leadership in the Labour Party, local government, or your community? We’re looking for women members to join our Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme.

Applications for 2018/2019 are now open and everything you need to know is right here.

The Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme is a training programme for passionate and experienced women members who are ready to lead in the Labour Party.

In memory of our friend and colleague Jo Cox, Labour Women’s Network and the Labour Party launched the Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme in 2016. Jo was an extremely talented MP, Chair of Labour Women’s Network and a proud Labour feminist who championed women in leadership roles.

Through this programme, we will create a generation of women who can continue Jo’s fight in parliament, local government and in their communities.

Watch our video to discover what the programme is all about and meet some of the women who have been involved.

"It wasn’t an individual self-improvement course, it was a network of women smashing the glass ceiling together by learning leadership, strategy and practical skills we can use to get where we’re going."
