About this Event

We invite you to join us for a rich and engaging conversation about the opportunities and challenges in preparing women leaders for the future with two illustrious leaders at the University of Cambridge, Dame Carol Black and a special guest, chaired by Professor Sucheta Nadkarni. Followed by drinks and networking.

Although some women have made great strides in reaching senior leadership positions, their rise up the leadership ladder is still not easy. Apart from more systemic factors such as real or perceived glass ceilings, unconscious biases and leaky pipelines that women need to overcome to reach the top successfully, women also often lack the belief or confidence that they can reach the top.

However, the future outlook is promising with projected females rising to leadership positions across different sectors globally set to rise significantly. As one of the most prominent women’s college at the University of Cambridge, Newnham College has been at the forefront of empowering women and creating women leaders across varied sectors including academics, business corporations, Not-for-profit and NGOs, politics and civil service.

In this interactive conversation, Dame Carol Black (Chair of British Library and ex-Principal of Newnham College) and a special guest will converse with Professor Sucheta Nadkarni (Sinyi chair and Director, Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre) about the opportunities and challenges for women and how women can prepare themselves for future leadership positions. They will share stories of their own career journeys and their vision for fostering gender equality in society.

The format will be very interactive with ample time for questions, comments and thoughts from the audience. We hope you can join us for an rich conversation around empowering women leaders of the future.

The event is free, and open to all. Suitable for ages 14+. Booking required.

Access: Cambridge Judge Business School provides lift access to the event space.
