Women inLeadership March session

The two year Women in Leadership programme is designed to help our colleagues overcome issues that they say can stop them stepping forward in their career. Current participants are ladies in middle management roles in our stores, depots and Home Offices.

Lindsay Goldsbrough is a Senior Director running 20 stores, a Talent Ambassador mentoring a group of talented women and a line manager developing and coaching a team of colleagues in Retail. Most important though is her role as a wife and a mother amongst these other things.

She has worked her way up through the company from colleague to manager, to store manager and has been in her role as Senior Director for ten months. She is a mother to Benjamin aged three and a wife to Maurice who is a GSM within Asda.

Asda colleagues have been busy recognising and thanking each other through the Asda Stars programme and one of the most popular ways to do this is by sending one of our free Asda Stars e-cards.

So far over 5000 e-cards have been sent since the programme launched in July 2013 and over 31% of those have been thank you e-cards.

Because they’ve been so popular we’ve just introduced a brand new colourful range of e-cards which are available on the Asda Stars website now – they’re free to send to your colleagues, friends and family.
