What's coming up in the next few months

After the wind down of Fire Starter Festival 2020 a few weeks ago, we're excited to share some of the outcomes from the festival and looking ahead to our upcoming events in March.

What does it take to lead in times like these?

Collective Leadership for Scotland in partnership with the National Leadership Centre, is hosting an event on the 20th March, titled “What Does it Take to Lead in Times Like These?”. This event will bring together leaders from across the UK to look at how we can lead together to deliver better outcomes in challenging times.

The event will offer a deep-dive into some key examples of the work of our leaders, the Collective Leadership Scotland team, and how this links into the wider work and ambitions of the SLF and its other workstreams, as we strive to deliver on the outcomes of Scotland’s National Performance Framework.

This event, which will be hosted by Martin Kalungu-Banda, is part of a series, which will take place over the course of 2020. We expect that demand will be high, so please register quickly:

First Minister's National Advisory Council on Women and Girls (NACWG) - Request for Facilitators

The First Minister’s National Advisory Council on Women and Girls (NACWG) exists to advise the First Minister on what’s needed to tackle gender inequality in Scotland. They are holding a mass participation event with their Circle of stakeholders in central Aberdeen on Wednesday 25 March, 10:00-13:30 and have requested help facilitating workshops. You can see more details about the event here

This year the NACWG’s focus is ‘Creating an Intersectional Gender Architecture – the status of women in Scotland, structures and intersectionality…’ For those of you who have facilitated at NACWG events before, for which we are very grateful, sessions this year will be a bit different and instead of facilitating table discussions, we’d like you to use your skills to facilitate a workshop. Prior to the workshop delegates will receive a learning package and the speech/s on the day will be designed to expand their learning. We are hoping to have 4 workshops on the day and they will all explore the same question. Further information on the workshop format will be shared with those who can commit to facilitate. 

In order to support you, we will provide a full briefing back and preparatory resources, which includes videos and reading, and we advise you allocate approximately half a day to digest this material. The NACWG Secretariat will also be available to take forward a tele-meeting with facilitators a week prior (suggest Wednesday 18 March) to answer any questions you might have on the preparatory resources/workshops. 

As the event will be taking place in Aberdeen, we ask that facilitators commit to the best of their ability to attending and provide us with advance notice if they are no longer available. There is also a small budget available to reimburse facilitators for travel and subsistence costs, should this not be covered by your employer. In addition, we are offering delegates a crèche facility at this event and we extend this offer to you, if this would help, and ask that you let us know if you would interested in using this facility by Wednesday 26 February at the latest. Please note that we might not be able to accommodate any requests after this date, as this will be dependent on the supplier. 

If you would be available to facilitate please contact the NACWG Secretariat directly at and please do get in touch if you have any questions that will help you arrive at a decision.
