Inspiring Women for staff

Welcome to the new look Inspiring Women Events, which are a series of occasional one-hour lunchtime talks by female speakers and is sponsored by Warwick's Provost,Chris Ennew. These talks are then followed by interactive workshops to support your career development. The initiative was established in order to encourage and inspire female staff at Warwick, to learn from other women, share their own experiences and to meet with colleagues they may not otherwise encounter on campus.

Inspiring Women Presents...

Closing the Influence Gap

Warwick alumna Carla Miller is a leadership coach, trainer and keynote speaker who works with women to develop their careers and their confidence. She also supports employers to develop and retain their female talent, build their pipeline of female leaders and encourage male ally-ship. Hundreds of women have taken part in her Influence & Impact course from companies including GSK, BT, Channel 4, Muller and Deloitte, as well as national charities, the NHS and the Civil Service.

Carla’s own experience includes raising £20 million for good causes and leading the fundraising at many national charities before moving into CEO roles in the charity and commercial sector.

She hosts the chart-topping Influence & Impact podcast for female leaders, which has featured leading thinkers such as Graham Allcott, Harriet Minter and Stefanie Sword-Williams. Her book, Closing the Influence Gap: A practical guide for women leaders who want to be heard’ is published by Practical Inspiration Publishing.

We look forward to welcoming Carla to the online event where she will be speaking about her book and women's experiences in the workplace.
