From challenge, comes change
Our hugely successful USW Women’s Development Programme is back – with another programme of virtual sessions aimed at Women working within academia and professional support services.
So far we’ve seen 100 women complete the programme, and have created a strong Alumni network, where women can collaborate and access resources through a virtual learning environment.
The programme will hopefully foster a more collaborative approach to overcoming challenges faced by women working within academia and promote the cross-fertilisation of problem solving and best practice across the institution, to equip more women to become leaders in their field.
During the programme, attendees will develop practical leadership skills, enhance personal skills and build networking opportunities that will continue after the formal programme has ended with the WDP Alumni group.
There will be a mixture of skills development workshops focusing on building coaching skills, resilience and networking abilities, as well as input from guest speakers from the world of business, academia and politics.
The overall aim is to raise awareness of the challenges facing women in the world of academia and provide interventions to help overcome those challenges.
