A GROUP aimed at promoting women as leaders has been launched in Kirklees.
The Kirklees Women’s Alliance was launched on Saturday, with Dewsbury-born Baroness Warsi and Deputy Kirklees Mayor Clr Julie Stewart-Turner speaking.
The aim of the group is to bring together women of all cultures and backgrounds and develop leadership skills.
Community cohesion officer Habiban Zaman said: “There is a need for a group like this in this area because we do not have a women’s organisation in Kirklees that promotes women and provides support to them.
“We have had a very positive response and the speakers were inspiring.”
The group will be setting up workshops for women to develop their confidence and leadership skills.
Membership is free. For more details or to join contact Ms Zaman on 01924 324561.
