Open to the Women of Swinburne, the Women in Leadership seminar is a half day extensive workshop presented by Felicity Furey. Attending students will: • Gain self-knowledge and confidence in their abilities as a leader • See opportunities to step into leadership • Leave with identified opportunities in moving forward. All within the context of University, the transition to the workforce and pursuing success as an ambitious woman. This seminar is the chance to develop significant self-knowledge and learn from an expert with hard-won and valued experience. This is a free event open to any female student at the University.

Event details

Students will begin by finding their own value and ‘genius zone’ before learning how to communicate that through pitching themselves. An examination of positive leadership role models will form the basis of the later half at the seminar which focuses on next steps and leads students to formulate a plan for their own development. Felicity believes this will empower students to continue to grow after the seminar is over.

This includes:

• Leadership today: the world of millennial leaders, how to find fast tracked opportunities and the positive role models in leadership – from a scary monster to empowering inspiration
• Leading you: understanding your value – genius zone vs zone of excellence,
• Position, Power and Presence: pitching you and your vision as a leader to step into leadership opportunities
• Your Leadership Roadmap: finding and taking action on your next leadership opportunity
