Event description

Description

The fifth UCD Women in Leadership Conference will take place on 13 February 2020, in O’Reilly Hall at UCD. This conference continues to grow every year and 2019 saw almost 700 students, professionals and UCD alumni come together, to discuss the obstacles that women face in their careers and how they can overcome them.


Speakers come from a variety of sectors to share their career journeys to date and inspire other women on their own career paths. The conference aims to empower attendees though networking opportunities, inspire through leadership lectures and panels, foster growth in their careers and help break the glass ceiling that still exists for women today.
