About this Event

Women In Leadership: What Does It Take For Women To Rise To The Top?

Talk Title: "A Personal Journey - The Accidental HR Director"

Julie Lloyd, Executive HR Director at LJMU retires from the University in March 2020, after 33 years of service. Julie joined LJMU in 1987 and became Director of Employment in 2000 after serving in various positions. Julie is passionate about the progression of women in the workplace and has always advocated for more women in the boardroom.

In her talk, Julie will explore the critical issues as to why we are not seeing more women in top positions and offer tips and strategies for overcoming the challenges to women’s advancement and career progression. Julie’s talk will be followed by an interactive question and answer session. We expect this to be a stimulating discussion.

The Aim Of The Event:

Passionate about improving gender diversity in senior leadership roles, Julie Lloyd - Executive Director Human Resources (pictured below) will offer tips on how to obtain a top leadership role and how to promote gender diversity in senior positions.

This event will provide a safe space for individuals to ask questions, share experiences and offer strategies to overcome challenges.

Who Can Attend The Event?

This event is open to all LJMU staff and students, as well as members of the local community and High School/College level students who aspire to obtain a leadership role in the future.
