This unique two-day open enrolment programme has been designed specifically for high potential women in junior and mid-level managerial positions aspiring to reach the top, or senior positions, within their organisations. 

The Challenge

Research shows that diversity in senior leadership encourages innovation, improves decision-making, reduces corporate misconduct and improves financial returns. Despite this fact, gender diversity is still a worldwide challenge at both an organisational and an individual level.

Whilst there have been great strides in achieving gender balance in the workplace, the progress is slow and there are still systemic barriers in place for women looking to achieve more senior leadership roles.

The future is bright

Despite the significant challenges, we believe positive progress is being made, with the number of female executives globally set to rise by 36 per cent. Supporting and nurturing a growing pool of talented female professionals is a crucial step in achieving greater diversity and it is what drives the work at Cambridge Judge Business School.

Topics of the event:

Some of the topics covered on the programme will be:

  • Executive coaching and career strategies
  • Female leadership advantage
  • Negotiation skills
  • Building, working with and growing high-performing teams
  • Strategies for career success, discussed with a distinguished panel
  • Strength based approach

Who should attend

This programme is designed for women who are intent on growing their professional capabilities within their organisations, and also their personal capabilities beyond corporate life.

Participants should be in the early to middle phases of their careers in management roles, with around three to 10 years’ experience in an entry to middle-management role.

The programme takes an uplifting strength based approach  to the opportunities which are there to be seized for women.
