Women's Leadership Program
EEECS Women’s Leadership Programme
We consider this programme to be a beacon activity within our School. The aim of the programme is to upskill our female staff and students with the knowledge and behaviours necessary to confidently and successfully navigate their future leadership journey. Delivered by the Clinton Leadership Institute, the programme consists of 4 modules;
Who am I?
Personality and behavioural preferences
Impact of choices, attitudes and behaviour
Leading oneself through change and transition
The programme runs annually in two cohorts, one for School UG students and one for School PG students and School staff.
One WLP participant commented
“The EEECS Women’s Leadership Programme was a fantastic opportunity for myself. As a student, you have to do presentations, interview for jobs etc., so having confidence in yourself is important. The programme was a great way to improve on these skills with other like-minded females. By taking part, I learned about what type of personality I have and learned how to deal with people who may have different ones to myself. The most important thing about the programme, was meeting all the other females who were so intelligent and watching all of us grow over the course of the programme was really remarkable!! I would highly recommend the programme to anyone!”

Over the last three years as part of the UG programme the Rachel Stanford Scholarship has been awarded to the best UG student graduating from our Programme. Rachel, an EEECS graduate and a strong advocate for females in leadership positions, was so excited by the Programme that she tailored a personal scholarship worth £1500.
