UC Careers’ Annual Event Empowering Women

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?’ The best thing about this event is that it brings both staff and students together, so make sure you save the date: Thursday 1 August, 5-7pm, Rehua 226 Te Moana.   

Our inspirational speakers include:

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 recognizing 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.

UC Careers’ Annual Event Empowering Women

UC Careers’ annual event overview, highlights questions and various calls to action that the guest speakers will cover:  

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)!

ICT Careers Fair – Tuesday 31 July

Every year, UC hosts a series of careers fairs to connect our future graduates with employers, but they aren’t only for students.

ICT Careers Fair
Undercroft, Puaka-James Hight building
Tuesday 31 July, 4.00 – 6.00pm

Connect – or reconnect – with business leaders in the ICT industry, and find out about new initiatives, innovations and trends to help students prepare for their career.

All students, even if they aren’t in their final year, should be encouraged to come along and meet potential employers, find out about internships, summer work and part-time jobs.

It is a great way to find out what employers are looking for in a new graduate, and our students can see what they should do to make themselves more attractive to employers after graduation.

Early Career Researcher survey

In mid-May, the Early Career Researcher (ECR) Forum of the Royal Society Te Apārangi opened a national survey of early career researchers

ECRs are important to longevity and performance of research-related industries in Aotearoa New Zealand, including tertiary education institutions, Crown Research Institutes, and private business. Yet little is known about the demographic features of the ECR population, their experiences, their attitudes, and their professional intentions. Our survey of ECRs hopes to address these knowledge gaps.

It’s important to get a full picture of the ECR population and UC is crucial for us getting the fullest picture possible. Please circulate this information to anyone at UC who may be interested.

The survey is anonymous, takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and is accessed via this link. An information sheet can be accessed via the link too.​
