Women in Leadership Masterclass Series

This masterclass series sees outstanding women leaders share their experiences with the next generation of female leaders to inspire, motivate and mentor. The Women in Leadership Masterclass Series is an initiative sponsored by Accenture and a follow on from the Women on Walls project.

The masterclasses are informal networking events for 10-12 participants from across various sectors.  After initial networking over refreshments our moderator kicks off the session with a short welcome and asks participants to give brief round table introductions. This is followed by a synopsis of the speaker’s career, challenges and successes.  The floor is then opened to participants questions and discussions moderated by our chair which yields interesting insights. Informal networking and sharing of experiences continues over a light lunch.

"I liked hearing from other, more senior, attendees about their experiences. Hearing from Mary about her journey. Getting advice from others."

"The insight gained from the other participants was also great, as it became clear that many of the challenges experienced by those in leadership roles are common, regardless of the specific position." 

"I liked that everyone was given a chance to participate in the conversation"

The series began in 2018 and we had very positive feedback from both our participants and our speakers.  Our speakers for the 2018 series were
Frances Ruane MRIA, Ena Prosser, Mary Kelly MRIA, Orlaigh Quinn and Zahra Bahrololoumi.
