Women in management and leadership

(Former name: Leadership and communication skills for women managers)

Course summary

As women make their way toward top positions and centre stage roles in the public, voluntary and private sectors, organisations are under increasing pressure to bolster their boards with independent ‘heavyweights’ and these are increasingly women.

Women bring a creative spark, intelligence, personality, professional ability and motivation to senior roles, but there are still constraints on career progression, both organisational and personal.
