Aurora Leadership and Development Programme

Aurora is a leadership and development initiative for women up to Senior Lecturer level or the Professional Services equivalent.

The programme

The Aurora programme for this academic year runs from January until June. We plan to run the programme again for the 2023/24 academic year and all eligible applicants will receive an invitation to apply in October.

Since its launch 10 years ago, more than 8,300 women across the UK and Ireland have taken part in Aurora. It ignites the leadership journey and inspires women to aspire and achieve leadership positions within higher education.

By taking part in the Aurora programme, you will explore four key areas associated with leadership success: Identity, Impact & Voice, Core Leadership, Politics & Influence and Adaptive Leadership Skills.

The programme offers a combination of in-person and online sessions along with workshop events, self-directed learning and mentoring. You will also have the opportunity to build valuable networks with your cohort during the in-person events. We are committed to supporting our Aurora community here at Bath by helping them get together to share your learning and bring ideas and challenges back to the University.
