For women working in science, engineering, technology or construction:
There is a considerable body of evidence which shows that women can encounter structural barriers to their progression in the SET professions – the glass (or sometimes concrete) ceiling.
There is also evidence which points to the ‘sticky floors’ that can prevent women from making the most of their skills, knowledge and abilities – these are more internal barriers which can hold women back.
But we can make progress on both fronts. This workshop will help you to:
- Engage in an “Appreciative Inquiry” about yourself – identifying more clearly the unique contribution you can make in work and other settings.
- Examine your abilities and leadership potential in the context of what research shows we really want from our leaders/managers.
- Think more deeply about your own priorities for the coming year – using the GROW coaching model.
- Develop two key recommendations about tackling the structural barriers in your industry and hear about ways we are working with employers to take this on.
This event is divided into two sessions one on October 21st from 10am to 12:30pm and the second on November 4th from 10am to 12:30pm. Please make sure you are available for both days before registering.
Our workshops are very popular and we often have waiting lists of participants from all over Scotland who wish to attend. If you realise that you are unable to join us, please let us know as soon as possible. That way we can offer your place to someone else.
