Inspiring Future Female Leaders

Inspiring Future Female Leaders Conference 2016

Tuesday 28 June 2016

Events Marquee, UCL Main Quad, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT

A multi-professional conference to celebrate women in medical leadership roles in 2016.  Join us to be inspired by renowned female leaders in healthcare with a background in Research, Global Health, Politics, Organisations such as Charities, Royal Colleges, Deaneries/LETBs, Universities....and many more! It promises to be a very interesting day and we envisage it would appeal to senior trainees, consultants, nurses and allied health professionals with an interest in expanding their position of leadership within healthcare.

Through our expert guest speakers (listed on the attached poster), we hope to answer the following questions regarding women in leadership:

  • Is there now gender equality in leadership?
  • How to be a woman in a man’s world?
  • Can leadership skills be taught or are they inherent?
  • How can we develop tomorrow’s female leaders amongst the trainees of today?
  • Should healthcare undergraduates be taught to lead?
  • Do men lead differently to women?
  • Where are all the female professors hiding?
  • What does the female voice add to leadership?
  • Do you need to be a feminist to be a female leader?
  • How can leadership platforms become more ethnically diverse?
  • Why are the male nurses more likely to achieve a leadership role?
  • Can a female leader maintain a work-life balance?
  • What does a woman have to sacrifice to lead?
  • Why are there more female doctors but less female leaders in medicine?
  • Do women make better leaders and men make better managers?

Please book early to avoid disappointment as spaces are strictly limited to 120 delegates.
