Women’s Leadership

The CWU is committed to encouraging more women to get involved in the union at all levels because we believe this makes us stronger and more relevant in the workplace. Over 50% of the UK workforce is made up of women and we think that women can make fantastic trade union activists. This newly designed course can be delivered over two or three days and includes a full programme of group activities, presentations and guest speakers all facilitated by experienced CWU tutors.

Aims of the programme:

This course is designed to:

  • Help women become more active in the CWU
  • Develop a better understanding of what unions are and how they work
  • Provide an opportunity to build effective support and networks for woman activists
  • Develop new ideas for how women can work at the heart of the CWU
  • To help YOU become more active in the CWU

Who should attend?

Any new women activists who have recently taken on any role in the CWU and women members who are considering getting more active in the CWU. You can work for any of the companies where we have a presence and don’t worry if you haven’t attended any union events or courses before, our tutors will be there to support you and you’ll find that union learning is a lot of fun, providing great opportunities for discussion, networking and sharing ideas and experiences.


This course does not attract paid release from the employers that we work with.
