Event description

Description

*Open to Hallam students only, student ID must be shown on entry*

The aim of the conference is to inspire self-defining women and non-binary students at Hallam to feel confident enough to put themselves forward for leadership positions. There will be workshops, activities and discussions all set up to help the women of Hallam grow in confidence and develop their leadership skills amongst other likeminded women.

Last year we ran sessions throughout the conference that included 'Having Difficult Conversations', '100 Years of Women's Right to Vote', 'BME Women in Leadership', 'Having the Confidence to be Remarkable', a 'Why your Mental Health makes you Stronger' all led by staff, students and alumni of Hallam.

Come along and feel inspired to be a leader!

The conference is FREE to attend but spaces are limited!
