The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) is hosting a Women in Leadership seminar on 25-26th of January 2019 aimed at students who are aspiring to run for student leadership positions in their Students' Unions as well as to become the heads of their college clubs or societies. This is being run as part of the USI 'Women Lead Project'.
Please note: The event is open to student members and current SU officers of the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), and is intended for potential and interested candidates in upcoming student movement elections, including elections to leadership positions (particularly Chairperson/Auditor) in college societies. It is also recommended for those who are considering the role of 'campaign manager'.
Accommodation: There are limited places pre-booked in the Generator Hostel in Dublin. If you live outside of Dublin and need accommodation, please indicate on the below form. This will be allocated on a first come, first served.
Registration:Once you have registered here, we will send a follow up email linking you in with your Students' Union. The event will begin with a 11:30am registration on Friday 25th at the Courtyard DIT Aungier St, and will finish by 5.30pm on Saturday 26th.
Registration for Saturday begins at 9:30am in NCI.
Costs:USI are covering venue hire, speaker costs, and lunch for Friday and Saturday. The participant's own costs for this event include travel, and Friday evening meal and overnight accommodation (if required) and the registration fee for this event of €15 pp. Once you have registered, we will link you with your SU to discuss further.
Content:Friday evening will finish in time for Dublin Bus/Luas transport, leaving plenty of time for those based in and near Dublin to return to their accommodation on public transport. Saturday's modules will kick off at 10am.
This will be a two day event with the aim to empower women, allowing them to realise their potential and give them the space to hear from women who have ran campaigns, been elected and are currently in leadership roles. This training and networking event is for self-defining women who hope to run for election or leadership positions during their time in college. The event will include campaigning tactics, public speaking, panel discussions with elected representatives, campaign management, leadership and facilitated discussions on women's issues.
This is a really important event in the USI Calendar, as it is one of our priorities to support self-defining women in the student movement to progress and succeed to leadership positions. However, at no point during the event will you be asked to disclose your gender identity other than your pronouns, if you wish. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please just ask.
All questions relating to the event are welcome to email@example.com with #WomenLead19 in the subject line!
