In Partnership with Morley College, this year’s conference looks at women in leadership positions. Women are under-represented in leadership, often promoted to below their ability level and facing barriers to progression. Women themselves can often experience a lack of confidence and greater tendency to question their ability and skills. There is also evidence that while women may structure their career development differently to most men and tend to bring a different leadership skills set that are arguably important for the 21st century, this experience and these skills are still always not valued.
During the conference we will explore the evidence on women’s career paths and why they often do not get the chance to fulfil their potential. You will hear from women leaders that have faced many challenges in getting to their leadership positions, the support they have received and what has helped them develop persistence and resilience. The workshops will look at strategies for increasing your support networks, raising your profile, extending skills and building your confidence.
ETF (Education and Training Foundation) is offering 20 free places to aspiring women leaders, particularly those who identify with other protected characteristics and experience other barriers to progression.
