Ascension is run by Natalie Hancock and Wendy Ramshaw. As busy professionals in Leeds, we want to provide a network for like-minded, aspirational females seeking guidance, support and insights to help them navigate their careers. Natalie is a Relationship Director in Commercial Banking and Wendy leads on Inclusion & Diversity for a global law firm.
At Ascension we believe that every women has the right to reach her potential and find her personal career fulfilment. As professional women, we can find ourselves in career situations where our gender differences have become an obstacle and hold us back from reaching the seniority we deserve. Our aim is to empower women to confidently take control of their careers.
Being a member of Ascension will empower you to construct your own strategy for success via a programme of events. As a group, we welcome subject matter experts to help us explore issues such as how we express our personal brands; approach our careers with grit, resilience and agility; set ourselves stretching career goals and celebrate achievement.
