Event description

Description

For women working in science, engineering, technology or construction:

There is a considerable body of evidence which shows that women can encounter structural barriers to their progression in the SET professions – the glass (or sometimes concrete) ceiling.

There is also evidence which points to the ‘sticky floors’ that can prevent women from making the most of their skills, knowledge and abilities – these are more internal barriers which can hold women back.

But we can make progress on both fronts. This workshop will help you to:

  • Engage in an “Appreciative Inquiry” about yourself – identifying more clearly the unique contribution you can make in work and other settings.
  • Examine your abilities and leadership potential in the context of what research shows we really want from our leaders/managers.
  • Think more deeply about your own priorities for the coming year – using the GROW coaching model.
  • Develop two key recommendations about tackling the structural barriers in your industry and hear about ways we are working with employers to take this on.
