Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Are you in a leadership position and would like to know how to progress within your company and overcome barriers that are hindering your success?

Would you like to be in the company of like-minded women who are also climbing the management ladder but may be experiencing some challenges along the way?

If you are an emerging female leader who would like to learn tips and success strategies from women leadership specialists, network with other female leaders, and learn how to raise your game, join us at ‘Shattering Your ‘Own’ Glass Ceiling’, at the University of East London on Wednesday, 14 June from 6pm-9pm.

You will:

  • Learn how women in leadership roles can stop sabotaging their own success by overcoming the 'imposter syndrome', a concept which describes high-achieving individuals who often belittle their accomplishments and also have a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud".
  • Gain tips to female leaders to help them to advance the career ladder and rise to the top
  • Hear about and explore ways in which women leaders can support one another in order to ‘stop playing small’ and conquer the ‘glass ceiling’

‘Shattering Your ‘Own’ Glass Ceiling’ is a MUST for all emerging female leaders who are committed to their development and success, overcoming barriers that sabotage their success, and being the best leader they can be!


6.00pm - Registration / Networking

6.30pm - Panel Discussion: Does the 'Glass Ceiling' really exist...or is it just a myth?

7.15pm - Mini Workshop: Shatter Your 'Own' Glass Ceiling - and become the leader you want to be!
