Statement: The Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme

In recent days, the Foundation has been asked to clarify its relationship with the Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme


The Leadership Programme was founded and is run by the Labour Party and Labour Women's Network. It is not a programme of the Foundation and there are no candidates in this election carrying our name or our endorsement.


The Jo Cox Foundation is a charity and does not represent any political party. Many people and organisations have been inspired to launch initiatives in Jo's name. You can learn more about legacy initiatives founded in Jo's name here. For clarity on which of these are run by The Jo Cox Foundation please see the 'Our Work' section of our website, or contact [email protected]
