The International Higher Education Women in Leadership Summit 2013
|Event Date/Time: Mar 12, 2013||End Date/Time: Mar 14, 2013|
Women in modern times are surpassing social and cultural barriers, making tremendous contributions to the advancement of education, business and the community. While many are rising and taking up pivotal roles in an increasingly dynamic Higher Education Sector, breaking through unique challenges and emerging as successful executive leaders in the academic and University management arena remains a challenge. Women are often under-represented in senior management roles and while exciting advances are being made in this area Institutions must continue to proactively address this through the provision of opportunities, supportive networks and programs which recognise the value of female leadership to Universities. Within this context, women in Higher Education must also actively refine their management skills, resilience, and ability to drive and influence change in order to steer educational excellence and Institutional performance through an era of unsurpassed change and transformation in the Higher Education Sector.
The International Higher Education Women in Leadership Summit 2013 is an interactive and exciting event bringing together emerging and current female leaders in Higher Education to network and share inspiring leadership experiences, discuss key priorities and challenges confronting female leaders. Attendees will hear inspirational step-by-step accounts of the leadership journeys of senior women, gain skills for career development and managing transitions into senior roles and also take away innovative ideas for supporting and advocating the development of other staff around you. An international speaker faculty will provide practical guidance on overcoming common obstacles and preparing yourself to be a leader for tomorrow in the dynamic University environment.
