Annual conference for women leaders in FE will focus on unlocking talent

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Women’s Leadership Network is hosting an annual conference on how employers and employees can identify their talents and achieve their full professional potential.

Four workshops will take place on themes including flexible working and board membership, and there will be a session led by Jackie Grubb, the principal of City of Westminster College, on mindfulness and wellbeing.

There will also be an interactive workshop on using social media to raise your professional profile, delivered by FE Week.

Taking place on March 8 at Morley College in London, the event is open to leaders and aspiring leaders from across the FE sector.

“It will be a chance to think creatively and strategically about how we can transform organisations so that they recruit and retain talent when they need it and how they need it,” explained Kathryn James, a member of the WLN. “Time will also be given to reflect on what we can do personally to be the best we can for ourselves and others, so that we all can use our innate talents for work and for wellbeing.”

Tickets can be bought from the ETF’s website, and 20 free places are on offer to women who work or study in the post-16 FE and training sector, and who are aspiring leaders. To find out more, click here.
