UCD Women in Leadership 2021

Be Inspired. Feel Empowered. Grow your Network.

 

Join us on 24 and 25 February for the sixth UCD Women in Leadership conference.

Although the conference takes place online this year, you will still experience inspiring discussions, breakout sessions and networking. Speakers will discuss being a leader, embracing failure, mental health, gaining equal footing and the future of work. Mentoring circles will offer participants a chance to have valuable face-time in small groups with inspiring leaders.

This event is organised by UCD Societies Council and UCD Alumni Relations and is kindly supported by Arthur Cox, Aldi, Skoda and Abbott.

What it Takes | Free Pre-conference Events

In the lead up to the main event, we have programmed two free career-building masterclasses to help you prepare to make the most of the conference opportunities.

Business, Negotiation

Wednesday, 3 February @ 6.00pm learn from UCD Smurfit lecturer and negotiator Stephen Boyle who will host What it Takes to negotiate effectively.

Personal Branding

Wednesday, 17 February @ 1.00pm join alumna Carol O’Kelly, CEO of Redstorm Communications Ltd, who will give  deep dive into What it Takes to master personal branding.

In the interest of connecting with allies, we encourage you to bring along a colleague who wouldn’t usually attend this type of event.

We look forward to welcoming you back this year for what will be a different experience. But what we are lacking in physical interaction will be made up by great talks, genuine online connections for our global audience and evergreen content.

UCD feels strongly about helping the wider community – if you are currently out of work as a result of the recent pandemic please email womeninleadership@ucd.ie and we will endeavour to work with those affected to ensure they are able to attend this event.

 

This event is kindly supported by Arthur Cox, Aldi & Abbott.
