Maximising female corporate talent at Leeds Met lecture
Heather Jackson, Founder and Chief Executive of An Inspirational Journey, will give the guest lecture at the University's Rose Bowl building on Thursday 8 November from 6-7pm.
An Inspirational Journey which launched in May 2011, is a group of four programmes including The Women's Business Forum and is fuelled by the Royal Bank of Scotland. The organisation aims to increase the number of women working at the senior corporate level by breaking down barriers and helping UK companies identify, develop and grow a large talent pool of women who have the potential to be leaders in the future.
Heather Jackson, commented: "I see this event as a great opportunity to discuss the issues around talent retention and development, as well as discussing the benefits of achieving better corporate performance and the positive impact this can have for both the individual and organisations. Furthermore, the chance to connect with an audience in this environment, some of whom will represent the next generation of our female talent is great!"
An Inspirational Journey currently works with over 33 globally recognised companies and reaches out to 4000 women through the delivery of its work - The Pearls Programme, The Two Percent Club and The Women's Business Forum.
Event organiser and Principle Lecturer in Accounting and Finance at Leeds Metropolitan, Paul Houghton, said: "Heather Jackson is an incredibly successful and inspirational figure in the corporate business world and whether you're a student, a budding professional or you're already established in your career, the seminar and her knowledge and experiences will undoubtedly be of great interest."
The free lecture will conclude with an opportunity to ask questions and places are available on a first come, first served basis.
