Why vocL?

Business has the power to unite policymakers and communities, shaping an inspiring, inclusive, and responsible world of work.

There are brilliant people in the business community who can offer experience and long-term strategic thinking.  Yet, we are struggling to name even five high profile, inspiring role models of responsible business.

Our purpose is to amplify business leaders' voices, drive responsible policies, foster truly inclusive and inter-generational conversations and champion business as a force for good.

vocL Leader Programme

Members of the three-year vocL Leader Programme (we call them vocL voices) create compelling messaging and engaging content. They participate in round table discussions, workshops, masterclasses, exclusive networking events and high-profile panel debates (virtually and in person) where they are joined by MPs, civil servants, journalists, and senior business leaders.

They are supported by the vocL community, a dedicated Mentor Associate, their peer-to-peer cohort as well as our impressive group of Founder Associates.

The programme is co-ordinated via our membership app, a safe and constructive space for lively and interesting debate, communication channels, and content creation.

vocL has taught me that your voice can be an absolute superpower, if you know how to use it.
Engineers are needed to change the world, now more than at any time in our history, but we cannot do our job from behind a desk or inside a factory, we need to put our heads above the parapet, to educate, inspire and challenge our politicians, business leaders and society as a whole. VocL is giving us the confidence to have that voice.
