BCS Northern Ireland in association with Empowering You.

Synopsis

This is a unique BCS Northern Ireland open programme, in association with Empowering You, to build a collaborative community of women in digital roles in Belfast and Northern Ireland. Delivered part-time over 3 months from October-December 2020, Women Transforming Digital Leadership is designed to enable the transition of aspiring and early career female managers into confident, capable and motivated leaders. A key element of this programme, will be a team project to encourage and support women in tech/digital roles in the Northern Ireland community.

The course equips participants with the knowledge and behavioural insights required for successful leadership, embedding and functionalising new learnings as real world behaviour and action. You will join a small cohort from diverse organisations and will enrich your learning through shared experiences and collaboration.

Empowering You has delivered many Empowering Women in a Digital World programmes since 2014; utilising a proven model of blended and experiential learning that includes individual and group work supported by personalised one-to-one coaching.

Important: Due to the current situation around COVID-19, this programme has moved to a fully online delivery format, whilst maintaining a fully interactive and multi-layered learning experience in individual and group formats.

Key Learning Intentions

  1. Accelerate leadership potential and embrace a ‘leader as learner’ mindset
