Women’s Leadership Network Annual Conference 2017
May 24, 2017 @ 12:00 am - June 15, 2017 @ 12:00 am
This year Morley College London hosts the Women’s Leadership Network Annual Conference.
Women – the under-valued leaders?
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 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. We 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.
Delegates will feel inspired, motivated and full of ideas for progressing their leadership journey from attending the Women’s Leadership Conference of 2017.
