Thank you for requesting to join the Lunar Network Women in Leadership Wellbeing Programme.
HOW WE SUPPORT WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE
This is a programme for women who are looking for a safe 'female only' group to go outdoors with to support their physical and mental wellbeing as well as networking opportunities to meet other professional women to learn from, talk about issues women face in the workplace, how they can be supported with their career development into leadership including aspects of their personal life that would lead to a better work life balance.
Our programme is open to women of all backgrounds and has been particularly helpful to those
(1) women who want to meet other professional women to help progress their career into leadership
(2) women that have had cultural hardships where women are not allowed to work, they may not be supported at home, they may be the first women in their family to enter into the workplace and need a support network around them to talk to and learn from
(3) women who are relatively new in the UK so don't have a large personal circle and want to meet other professional women to network with
Women have found our group help them to feel more confident, empowered and has helped their speaking and communication skills, as they are meeting new people, part of an active and supportive community where they feel safe to participate in activities they wouldn't necessarily do so by themselves.
EMPLOYER REIMBURSEMENT SUPPORT

CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP PROGRAMMES
We currently have 2 programmes available.
1) UK Wellbeing Walking Day Breaks & Meet Up Networking Events
(£95 per month) £1,140 annually
This is our most popular programme where we take groups of women out regularly around the UK to network with other women, to de-stress and to have a complete break from their busy work week on a Saturday. These tend to be longer city walks, country walks as well as walks along the UK coastline. Women find these days highly beneficial for their personal development and confidence, as they are travelling to new places they wouldn't ordinarily visit alone, learning life skills, independence, becoming more confident to venture outside of their comfort zone, try new things and lean about new places.
In addition to the full day trips, we meet regularly at Cannon Hill Park (Birmingham) on a Saturday to complete an easy-going circular route of 10k steps (1.5 - 2 hour walk).
We also have a regular Meet & Greet Event at a coffee house in Moseley (Birmingham) on a Saturday to welcome new members and network with professionals. There are opportunities to speak at our events to improve your public speaking skills, so you can get practice in a safe environment to help you at work and get feedback.
