Women in Leadership programme is 'challenging and refreshing'
Our Dean, Professor Veronica Hope Hailey, is a world authority on leadership and trust. She will bring together an impressive group of speakers for October's Women in Leadership programme.
This will be the first programme of its kind to run out of the University's new London facility. Find out more and book your place.
Promoting equality and diversity
The lack of women in senior positions has been widely recognised. The programme forms part of a wider initiative by Veronica to help promote equality and diversity in leadership roles.
Our first Women in Leadership programme took place in Bath in 2016. Keynote speakers were
- Labour politician Baroness Jan Royall of Blaisdon
- Caroline Waters OBE, the campaigner and influential former Director of People and Policy at BT
Joining them were
- Lynn Roseberry, Associate Professor at Copenhagen Business School and a lawyer with more than 20 years' experience working with gender issues
- Judy Greevy, an HR Director with former roles in both the private and public sectors, including Director of Corporate HR and Sustainability for HMRC.
A number of senior female faculty from the University also took part in a panel session.
New programme to build on success
The success of that first programme led to the development of a second. Designed for women in business from across all sectors, the 2017 Women in Leadership is a five-day programme.
Participants will explore latest thinking on issues related to women in leadership, working in small groups to share insights and compare experiences. They'll benefit from one-to-one coaching sessions to reflect on their career opportunities and develop their own personal plan to achieve them.
The programme takes place at the University's prime location and facilities in central London.
In October Jan Royall, Caroline Waters and Judy Greevy will be joined by
- Margaret Heffernan, the renowned international business woman, entrepreneur, Chief Executive and author
- Emmanuel Caboche, a former fighter pilot and Strategy Director for the Ministry of Defence
2016 participant Deborah Lewis, Senior Teaching Fellow at the University of Bath, said:
'I thoroughly recommend this programme. It has been in equal parts challenging and refreshing and the supportive environment allows you to explore ideas frankly. The quality of the speakers is excellent and the network of colleagues, diverse and stimulating.'
