Overview

Join us for the University of Edinburgh Business School's next 'Connecting Women in Leadership' event which will take place at Mary Ward House Conference & Exhibition Centre.

The event is open to all members of the School's alumni network (as well as members of our current MBA cohort) and aims to bring together a diverse range of individuals to enable them to share their experiences and foster lasting connections. In addition to networking over drinks and canapes, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in round table discussions on key themes relating to women in leadership including:

  • Leadership development
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Innovation
  • Communication skills development
  • Personal branding
  • Social development (personal activities around CSR, volunteering, community development)
  • Governance

This evening event will form a key part of a two-day 'Women in Leadership' trip for participants on the Full-time MBA and Executive MBA as they 'find their voice' in business. During the trip, our students will visit a range of organisations and gain further knowledge, skills and experience to contextualise the current leadership issues faced by women in business today.
