Programmes from 5-12 months in length, each requiring a weekly commitment of around two hours, are available for women at different management levels. Limited scholarship funding of up to £1,000 (for entry- and mid-level) and £2,500 (for advanced level) is available.

Supporting women into leadership roles
A priority area for the LI’s Diversity and Inclusion Working Group is to help more female members of the profession into leadership roles. LI research has found that gender balance in the landscape profession is equal at entry, but becomes progressively worse at senior levels.
WLI believes that supporting more women to rise to leadership positions in key UK sectors ‘will have tremendous cultural and economic benefits’.
