Queen's University Belfast and Women in Business events to focus on female leaders

Queen's University Belfast and Women in Business are joining forces to highlight the role of women in leadership with two international conferences next month.

The 8th annual Women in Business Conference will be held at the Ramada Plaza hotel on September 22, while Queen's inaugural conference on 'Women and Leadership in a Changing World' will be held at the Ulster Museum and Riddel Hall on September 22 and 23.

The event is organised in partnership with the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.

Roseann Kelly, chief executive of Women in Business, said: "We've had a long association of working with Queen's as our educational partner. I am pleased that our two conferences will bring focus to women in business and in leadership. The impact of future trends in business cannot be ignored, so we are delighted to explore this theme and its influence on our businesses, leadership and diversity."

Queen's is a founding member of Athena SWAN, a UK-wide initiative that seeks to advance gender equality in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine.
