UC held its first Auckland Women in Leadership breakfast on Tuesday 8 March , aligning with International Women’s Day.
The event connected UC students, alumni and four of our Pro-Vice-Chancellors with future women leaders from Auckland high schools to share leadership experiences and advice.
Guest Speaker and UC alumna Justine Ross presented her journey as the co-founder of ’42 Below’ vodka, an investor and writer. Her message to high school students was to never give up on the pursuit of your dreams, to keep going when people say no, to fill your head with good stuff and surround yourself with good people.
Here’s what past participants have had to say about it:
“One of the big things for me was meeting people passionate about their research, teaching, and an academic career. I have a much better understanding of what an academic career involves, the dedication required, and the avenues for support.”
“Jarg’s presentation was particularly relevant and helpful. The teaching panel was also full of great information, and Larry is brilliant.”
“Overall, the programme was very informative and motivating. I consider the 2 days a very good time investment.”
