Women’s Leadership Network Conference 2019

Thursday 11th July 2019
10am – 4.30pm


Inclusive leaders are described as people-oriented, compassionate and able to tap into the talents and motivations of the workforce. What do inclusive leaders do to lead inclusive organisations at all levels, that touches all who learn and work in their organisations? What is the impact and the benefits?

What does it mean to be an ‘inclusive leader’? How do you move beyond rhetoric to practising inclusive leadership every day in all aspects of your leadership in these times of constant change, financial pressure, public scrutiny and concerns in the sector about stress and mental health.

Is practising inclusive leadership an opportunity to re-connect with the values and purpose of FE, skills and lifelong learning of social justice and opportunity for all. Could it enable leaders to take a more intersectional approach to everyday practices and processes and create healthier organisations that nurture talent and a more diverse leadership now and for the future.

The conference brings together inspirational and thought-provoking speakers, including Caroline Criado Perez (author of Invisible Women. Exposing data bias in a world designed by men), followed by interactive sessions to discuss and shape what we mean by inclusive leaders

Who should attend?

The conference is aimed at anyone from the FE, skills and lifelong learning sector who are:

• Leaders and governors who want to be inclusive leaders and want to take a strategic approach to creating inclusive organisations.
• Aspiring leaders who want to explore ideas and concepts of inclusive leadership for their own personal development.
• Women, who are teachers, support staff, students or new in the workplace and who want to practice inclusive leadership in their roles and who want a say in what inclusive organisations should look like.
