What do women bring to leadership?

Become a leader by empowering women (and yourself)

UC Careers’ annual event empowering women is back! This year we explore a valuable 21st century skill that’s important for all women to develop. The theme of the event is focused on ‘what do women bring to leadership?’.

So be sure to lock this into your calendars:

  • When: Thursday 1 August, 5-6pm
  • Where: Rehua 226 Te Moana.   

Our inspirational speakers include:

  • Hannah Duder, CEO, Indigo & Iris
  • Stella Ward, Chief Digital Officer, CDHB and WCDHB

So what is this event all about, and why should you attend? 
Besides leadership being an important 21st century skill, we can develop a sense of fulfillment through recognising our own leadership skills and attributes, it’s a way of empowering others, and making a positive impact by shaping the world in which we live.

Guest speakers at UC Careers’ annual event will explore the following questions and calls to action:   

Have you thought about what women bring to leadership?
Let’s pause and recognize leadership skills and attributes within ourselves and others, and the value of these. Also let’s think about how these can be leveraged to develop and demonstrate leadership.

How would you define leadership? 
Or have you thought about the meaning women attach to the word leadership? We aim to broaden what we know leadership to be, and celebrate how we can all demonstrate leadership, no matter what opportunities we choose to pursue.

Let’s overcome real/perceived barriers! 
Sometimes women are held back. What’s stopping women from reaching higher, from taking the lead, and breaking through to the top? We want to break down the barriers holding women back from leadership experiences, so make sure you come and hear the advice these inspirational speakers are keen to share.

Lastly, let’s gather some words of wisdom. 
A few words and actions can make a big difference. Hear words of wisdom from our guest speakers to support women to embrace leadership.

Remember – Become a leader by empowering women (and yourself)!
