Our Women’s Leadership Programme
- three lectures/workshops led by female SJC alumnae with leadership
expertise in different professional fields
- three small-group discussions on topics related to leadership.
In previous years, we have covered, among other topics, public speaking, resilience and coaching.
As a participant, you get the chance to discover, develop and practise leadership skills and to kick-start impactful leadership experience early on – for free! The programme is a valuable opportunity not only to develop skills that are relevant across all career paths, but also to meet female alumnae who are ‘walking the walk’, and to connect with fellow graduate students.
With a required time commitment of only 6-8 hours across one term, this programme is designed with busy graduate students in mind.
If you identify partly or wholly as a woman and you are a graduate student at St John’s, you can register your general interest in the programme by completing this form. You will be the first to know the Hilary term dates when they are confirmed.
If you have any questions, email this year’s head of the programme and DPhil student at St John’s, Angelika Love.
