Women in Leadership Series

Launched on International Women’s Day, this Women in Leadership Series aims to showcase inspiring women who are leading the way in business. This representation is critical to advancing gender justice and equality.  

We’ll be joined by keynote speaker, Veronica Povey, who is Finance Director (Head Office and Strategic Programmes) at the Ministry of Defence. Veronica will discuss the power of women leaders in creating transformational change in business. 

You’ll also benefit from a personal development session in leadership and a Q&A session with Veronica where you can ask any burning questions.  

“The Women in Leadership Series builds on the success of the School of Business and Law in achieving the Athena Swan bronze award,” says Adaeze Okoye, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Lead at the School of Business and Law. 

“This series addresses the identified necessity for visible role models through guest speakers and training. [It] will also strengthen the mission and value of the school by supporting inclusion and thought leadership.  

“It places diversity at its heart and welcomes staff and students to benefit from inspirational speakers and training.”
