Next Generation Leadership Programme

Programme Details

Running Mon 13th - Fri 17th May 2019
Duration: 5 Days
Cost: £1400 (VAT is non-applicable) £1200 (QUB staff members)


This four day intensive course (non-residential), based at Riddel Hall, Queen’s University Belfast, includes workshops and seminars on topics such as conflict management, communication skills, leadership skills, team management and work/life balance. It is designed to benefit both the participants and their sponsoring organisations.

Who is it for:

Next Generation seeks to further address the current low levels of women’s participation in the senior ranks of economic, social, political and public decision-making, exacerbated by the prolonged period of conflict in Northern Ireland. It is an intensive four-day programme which includes a mix of seminars, discussions and workshops, and it continues to be unique in its focus, content and aims.

The programme is designed for women in mid-career who wish to progress and develop their leadership capacities. It provides participants with the space to explore their leadership potential in a supportive environment.

We have designed the programme to operate within a broad understanding of decision-making and thus welcomes women keen to participate and advance in all aspects of economic, social, political and public life.

What you get:

It provides participants with key skills, a more focused sense of their personal leadership capacities, a clearer strategy for the future, and an appreciation of the personal challenges and rewards inherent in becoming a leader. It is a programme which may also help contribute to gender equality strategies within the workplace.

Refreshments will be provided.
