Special interest groups

Special interest groups (SIG) bring together members who have a common interest based on sector, on role, on ownership model, according to a common challenge or indeed by any ongoing shared interest which members are keen to discuss with others like them, addressing or considering addressing the same situation.

I’d like to share my appreciation for the Women in Leadership program run by MD2MD.  Joining the group has been a transformative experience that I am grateful for. The open and non-judgmental atmosphere of our meetings has allowed me (and others) to share thoughts and challenges in a safe space.  The wisdom and empathy from the group has helped me navigate through difficult situations.  I’ve gained valuable insights and learned from other’s experiences. Women in Leadership is a group committed to personal growth and empowerment.  The discussions explore subjects and experiences that are important to the members and allow help, guidance and coaching from others to find a path forward for that situation.  Having the support and encouragement from others in the group help me to handle situations that may have been more challenging if facing them alone. In summary Women in Leadership is a group of likeminded women who support each other. To any woman seeking connection, growth, and a supportive community, I would recommend joining these groups.  I always look forward to participating in our next meeting. Jakki Dean
The original reason for joining MD2MD – to be part of a group with different people and perspectives remains as valuable today. Jamie Shepperd
MD2MD provides an invaluable opportunity for me to learn from my peers, for me to road-test my thinking in a safe environment, and for me to keep developing my leadership skills. Adrian Leer
