Sponsorship Initiative

50% of places at Aspire events are sponsorship (no cost).
1 for 1.
When you buy a place at Aspire, you sponsor another woman or girl to attend at no cost to them.

Introducing our pioneering 1 for 1 sponsorship program, where one woman sponsors another woman.

This isn’t just your typical sponsorship arrangement, it’s a powerful initiative that fosters connections and builds bridges between women at different stages of their leadership journeys.

At each Aspire event, 50% of the participants sponsor the other 50% to attend. 

Every paying participant is a sponsor for someone who doesn’t have the means at the moment for whatever reason to attend an Aspire event, providing them with access to the same enriching experience and networking opportunities as the other. It’s where one woman’s investment multiplies into a community of support and encouragement, a ripple effect that will extend far beyond the event itself. 

Our main criteria for sponsorship places is as follows:

  • Currently unemployed
  • Student
  • Retired
  • Working in a charity
  • Going through a difficult period financially
  • No training and development budget currently
  • Something else, let us know!

AND you must have a desire to develop yourself so that you can make a difference to yourself and others in life, your workplace and the world.

Here at Aspire, we believe in the power of women supporting women. And male allies can absolutely attend too.

If you are interested in this sponsorship opportunity for yourself and/or others, please do the following:

  • Identify the event, workshop or conference you are interested in attending.
  • Fill our the registration form – via button below.

Apply for a scholorship

Once received, you will receive an confirmation. Please note –  registering does not guarantee you a sponsorship place, so do not book travel etc. until you are sure you have been awarded a place.

You must apply separately for each individual event you are interested in, regardless of whether you have applied for a past event. This allows the process to be fair to all applicants.

If we determine you are successful, you will receive an official Scholar Acceptance email within 7 days or sooner of submitting your registration. We look forward to hearing from you.

The boost I needed

"I can’t say enough good things. It was amazing and life changing. I can see why people came from all over the country and world to be a part of it. The boost I needed"

Kerri Davis

Business Manager, Community Action Partnership

The most inspiring and actionable workshop I’ve ever attended

“Yesterday I attended an Aspire workshop. The night before, I almost dropped out. That little voice in my head was telling me that I wasn’t good enough, despite having been awarded a scholarship place for the event. How could I compare to the incredible businesswomen who would be attending the event? However, I fought through the nerves and as a result, experienced the most inspiring and actionable workshop I’ve ever attended. I learnt key techniques to structure presentations, optimistic visualisation exercises and received insightful peer feedback on my strengths . I came away with a clear direction and action plan, along with an accountability partner to ensure I deliver on my promises!”

I have come away full of ideas, potential and excitement

“I came on a scholarship place and it surpassed all my expectations. I have come away full of ideas, potential and excitement about how I can make a bigger impact in my role and career generally.”

So inspiring and energising

“Thanks a million again for the scholarship place on the course yesterday. It really was so inspiring and energising.”

Mandy George

Communications and Accountability Advisor, Red Cross

It was the best that I have been to

“A little note to say thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in the Aspire workshop through your scholarship programme! It was the best event/conference/training/networking that I have ever been to."

Anne Louise Meincke

Head of Policy and Public Affairs, World Cancer Research Fund Intenational

Pure inspiration

“It was a pure inspiration. I have the empowerment to change static views and engage further in equality. Every woman needs to engage with Aspire and every woman in power needs to step up for those who can't. It crosses borders, it crosses sectors, it unites a flame inside you to stand up, raise the roof, to make a change with a massive support crew in tow.”
