Women in Leadership Videos


On International Women’s Day back in 2018, we launched a new series entitled “Women in Leadership” with former Minister for Health – Mary Harney.  This event has proven to be hugely popular, with a relaxed social feel thanks to the fireside chat format, a networking lunch afterwards – and of course, excellent and inspiring speakers!

Unfortunately, Covid has meant that we haven’t been able to hold this event as yet this year, but we’re hopeful for two events later in the year…. 

In the meantime, and to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th, we’re releasing all of our previous Women in Leadership videos to our members.  Enjoy!
