The Bluebell Partnership was founded with the vision of creating a world of work where working parents and women in leadership can reach their full potential. Where flexibility is the norm - whether you have children or not. Where it's as commonplace to find a man taking extended leave on the birth of a child as it is a woman. Where becoming a parent or being a woman in leadership is universally recognised for the value that can bring to a business.
The approach to this challenge has two sides:
Advisory - working in partnership with individual organisations to help them identify the key opportunities open to them, develop a plan and oversee delivery
Influencing - raising awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing UK business at a national level through a regular blog, speaking at industry events and supporting changes in government policy
"I brought Catherine in as an external ‘thought partner’ to help with the development of our diversity and inclusion strategy. She proved to be both a fantastic sounding board on the strategy and equally able to turn her hand to delivery - which in my experience is a rare and highly valuable combination. The insight she provided on what's working well in other businesses together with just the right level of challenge really helped us progress our thinking and begin creating a practical action plan."
