DCU Business School has developed ‘Let’s Lead!‘, a relevant and contemporary DCU Leadership Development for Women programme.

Key to Ireland’s economic success is the optimising of the skills and talent of our people throughout all regions of the country.  Increasing the participation of women in entrepreneurship, leadership and senior management roles is a critical feature of this strategy.

This programme provides a relevant, refreshing and contemporary approach to leadership for women. Its foundation is the acknowledgment that women’s careers and leadership journeys often follow a very different route to those of men.  Thus many women can find themselves caught between competing and conflicting identities and goals which need dedicated time to explore.

This programme provides women with an opportunity to discuss and examine these complex issues in an action-oriented environment in the supportive company of other female leaders.  Guided by insights from the field of organisational psychology, the programme emphasises the importance of deep reflection on career-related choices. It provides the space and time required for women to consider these issues in a personal and strategic manner.
