About Us

Emma and Jenny were inspired to start Women to Work when having a conversation about the unfulfilled potential we saw in women all around us – brilliant bright capable motivated women unable to meet their professional and/or personal potential for a variety of reasons.

We knew we wanted to make a difference if we could and that’s where we started in 2014, and we are now proud to have run women’s development programmes in both the public and private sector as well as having designed and delivered coaching and mentoring training, group coaching workshops and having supported many individual women with varied backgrounds and motivations through one to one coaching.

We absolutely love what we do with all our initiatives having coaching at their core. We are passionate about how coaching can help the people we work with to see new horizons that best fit their values, helping them to feel positive, motivated and able to create a fulfilling professional and personal life.

As a business with social aims we want to provide coaching to as many people as we can, so you’ll see we have different rates depending on whether you come to us as an individual or an organisation and whether you are a private or public sector organisation. This enables us to offer what we hope is affordable and fair coaching for all.

Jenny and Emma are both qualified professional coaches and have a range of business and life experience that, alongside setting up and running Women to Work since 2014 includes having worked in a self-employed capacity and commercial corporate experience to senior management level as well as strong academic knowledge in the field of coaching and mentoring, Emma and Jenny are also both members of the EMCC and the Association for Coaching.

We focus on building impactful relationships with organisations, women’s networks and women and men who are passionate about developing women in the workplace, developing resilience in individuals and developing coaching/mentoring as a way of being. Working together to take many thoughts and ideas and funnel these down with clarity into a focused plan to create the initiative that will best suit the needs of the individuals, networks and organisations we work with.

We hope this has sparked your interest and we look forward to talking to you about how we could help support, inspire and develop you, or the people in your organisation or network.

Supporting others is at the heart of what we do so charity donations are a part of our aims too and we are pleased to have been able to donate to a range of charities over the last few years. We have also set up our own Women to Work Grove of Celebration & Gratitude with Trees for Life which you can read more about here and of course you are welcome to add a tree to our grove.
