As restrictions ease, we are delighted to give Aurorans the opportunity to meet in person at four one-day events across the UK and Ireland. These events are designed as additional activity for colleagues who are engaging with the main programme virtually on the 21/22 cohort, and are open to those who have previously engaged virtually but have not yet had a chance to meet face-to-face (from 19/20 and 20/21 cohorts).

Event format and content
The day will begin with a panel of expert speakers discussing ‘The Future of HE’ before answering your questions. Delegates will then explore the topic further in smaller groups, sharing experiences and aspirations, examining the challenges women face as leaders and identifying the practical steps that can be taken to achieve their goals.
Throughout the day, we will revisit the four key areas associated with leadership success and delivered by Aurora:
- Identity, Impact & Voice
- Core Leadership
- Politics & Influence
- Adaptive Leadership Skills
Presentations and discussions will also feature some of the recommendations from our research report “Onwards and Upwards? A final report for Aurorans on the longitudinal study”
