TWG - Realising the Leadership Potential of Women:Discussion and Networking
Tue, November 8, 2016, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM GMT
Join #TrinityWomenGraduates on Tuesday November 8th for Realising the Leadership Potential of Women: Discussion and Networking Event.
In this career-focused event open to members and non-members of Trinity Women Graduates, Dr Deirdre Ahern of the School of the Law, Trinity College Dublin will present some of her international research on measure companies can take to increase female representation in leadership.
As well as discussion of the merits of quotas, of particular interest are the lessons which can be learned from examining how some exemplary companies around the globe distinguish themselves by demonstrating real buy-in to the notion of gender equality, adopting policies which actively facilitate women to rise through the ranks of the company to senior management levels.
In Ireland, initiatives such as the 30% Club have been welcomed. To reflect on this, Deirdre will be joined by a panel providing personal insights and tips from their own career experience including Gina Quin, President of National College of Ireland and former CEO of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Rachel Hussey, Partner, Arthur Cox and Steering Committee of The 30% Club. Prosecco Reception and Networking to follow.
