Women in Academia: personal & career development

Positively impact your career

The aim of the programme is to enable each of the participants to discover more about themselves through interacting with other highly talented female academics in a challenging but pleasant environment and build their networks.

Key topics of the programme are: leadership, effective communicating, leveraging your networks, and navigating the political playing field. During the programme participants will explore best practices, share insights, learn about the latest research, compare experiences, and discuss their ideas and challenges with each other.

Since the programme is highly practical, participants can put what they have learned into practice immediately. During the programme guest speakers from within Erasmus executive board level will be invited to share ideas and get into discussion with the participants. Speed meetings with Erasmus professors will be an important part of the programme to broaden the participant’s network.

The outcomes of the programme will facilitate highly talented women to:

  • explore the value of women in leadership and develop an understanding of their own leadership style and how it aligns with their leadership strategy
  • think critically about their attitudes and beliefs about gender
  • learn how to communicate effectively by exploring new perspectives on communication processes that will enhance their ability to understand and navigate complex interactions
  • develop new perspectives on the meaning, value and importance of social networks both within their personal and organisational context
  • enhance their ability to support others in their aims to achieve individual and organisational goals.

Please note: This programme will only continue with sufficient participants.
