An equal world is an enabled world.
For International Women’s Day 2020 we are celebrating everything UWE Bristol does year-round to promote equality for all, including the ‘Women in Leadership and Women Aspiring to Leadership’ (WILWAL) network fronted by Executive Officer, Amy Rogerson.
The group provides a safe environment for UWE Bristol staff, where women can discuss their leadership journeys, challenges and successes, and is for women at all stages of their leadership journeys. Since re-launching in 2019, WILWAL has hosted four sessions with a range of inspirational speakers at varying points in their careers and lives.
So far, speakers have included Chrissie Waple who spoke about Neuro-linguistic Programming (and also hosted an extra session to expand on the topic due to high demand from attendees), Aimée Sykes who gave a presentation on the celebration of future leaders and the importance of female role models and Yoma Smith who shared her leadership journey and how it has impacted, and been impacted by, her work in the community.
Each session reminded the group of their own unique abilities to become leaders in every aspect of their lives, and that not everyone has the same path – in fact they are all very different!
