WeAreTheCity has a proven track record in delivering high quality events for women. Over the past eight years, we have run over 85 events and three conferences for over 10,000 female attendees both in the UK and India.

WHAT MAKES WEAREFUTURELEADERS TIMELY AND UNIQUE?

Together with our membership focus groups and our previous conference attendees’ feedback we saw the same themes emerging:

LACK OF TRAINING AND SENIOR NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES NEEDED TO PROGRESS TO THE NEXT STAGE OF THEIR CAREER.


LEADERSHIP TRAINING IS USUALLY ONLY AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY IN JUNIOR MANAGEMENT ROLES


NUMBER OF EXTERNAL EVENTS ARE TOO FOCUSED ON STATISTICS & DATA OF HOW WOMEN ARE NOT PROGRESSING. WE OFFER HANDS-ON SKILLS & TOOLS



RECOMMENDATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE BY NUMEROUS CHARTERS TO SUPPORT THE PROGRESSION OF WOMEN INTO LEADERSHIP ROLES



WEAREFUTURELEADERS: SUPPORTING THE FEMALE PIPELINE

A practical upskilling and networking day opportunity for our female talent pipeline to progress, explore potential, and position them for future leadership roles across a multitude of industries.

The conference agenda has been carefully curated through extensive focus group research over the past six months with key members of the WeAreTheCity/Careers Club community. Through those focus groups, our events curators have been able to map out the critical path of a leader and the skills required to develop into a management/ junior leadership position. We also listened to our focus groups feedback in terms of what training they wanted but did not have access to within their firms due to their current responsibilities/grade or position.

WeAreFutureLeaders will be a unique conference that includes the opportunity for delegates to learn about a broad range of leadership skills as getting involved with Q&A’s, hands-on activities and interactive workshops. This is not a conference whereby our speakers or sessions will labor on the stats around the lack of female progression nor will they focus on soft skills. Instead, this is very much about shifting the dial and positioning our attendees to move themselves forward in their careers and towards a position of early leadership roles within their respective firms. The focus is placed on interactive learning with keynotes from leading industry figures plus a selection of engaging electives, which will enable our attendees to focus on the areas that are most important to them in terms of their development journey.
