The inaugural Women in Leadership (WiL) programme was launched in the middle of the pandemic (September 2020) and was necessarily forced into a virtual modality. However, over the course of the six month programme, WiL achieved a leadership and intellectual sorority that surpassed the highest expectations of HELM. The WiL programme culminated in a hybrid event held in March 2021. The second WiL programme got underway in August 2021 and consisted of a range of activities, insights on women in leadership from world renowned speakers, assignments and opportunities for self-reflection. The course is accredited as a short learning course through NMU.

The programme had nine sessions and the presentations are contained below.
