Watch back the 2021 conference sessions.

In the meantime, why not enjoy the content from last year?

In 2021 we held the first (and hopefully last!) fully virtual UCD Women in Leadership conference. Check out the sessions with our inspiring speakers from last year to whet your appetite for the upcoming event. Topics such as mentorship, mental health, embracing failure, inclusion and the future of work are all covered.

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

UCD feels strongly about helping the wider community – if you are currently out of work as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic please email womeninleadership@ucd.ie and we will endeavour to work with those affected to ensure they are able to attend this event.

If you would like to learn more about sponsorship opportunities to allow our students to attend the conference, please get in touch with jennie.blake@ucd.ie


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