University of Southampton to host summit

August 7, 2018 by  

The University of Southampton is preparing to stage an international summit to empower women.

The International Leadership Summit (ILS) is all about encouraging women to succeed in the engineering sector. The event has never been held in the UK before. The ILS will take place in the middle of August in Southampton this year. A careers fair will launch the proceedings. Business card printing in Southampton can help local enterprises to recruit.

The careers fair will enable participants to gather information about a diversity of firms. There should be a lot of interest in topics like pathways of progression. Panel discussions and presentations will highlight important subjects such as training contacts and opportunities for work experience. Prestigious organisations will get involved in networking sessions.

Aneesha Sethi, a PhD student, is chairing an organising committee. She said:

“I would like to invite all of you to register for our summit to celebrate Women and Diversity. We feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to host IEEE’s Women-in-Engineering International Leadership Summit in Southampton.”

Sethi is hopeful that senior women will share their stories at the summit. Certainly, a wide range of keynote speakers will bring something special to the occasion. The leading women may opt to discuss community engagement. However, the women could choose to give their insights in relation to surmounting obstacles and goal attainment.
