Aurora has been designed to help address the issue of the reducing numbers of women in senior posts in the higher education sector as outlined in the Leadership Foundation’s Stimulus Paper ‘Women and Higher Education: Absences and Aspiration’ by Professor Louise Morley (January 2013).

Many influential stakeholders including vice-chancellors, Hefce and the Equality Challenge Unit agree the situation calls for immediate action to halt this decline. Feedback from the sector tells us that HEIs would like to encourage more women to apply for leadership roles and feedback from the women suggests that early leadership development would facilitate this.

However the research suggests that developing women will not be enough to halt this decline on its own, so Aurora has been designed to take a partnership approach with institutions. This involves the HEIs making a commitment to provide mentors and role models from within their organisations as well as participants so that the issues and challenges of leadership progression for women are recognised more widely across the institution. The Aurora content itself will include many of the features identified by the research as significant factors in the successful development of women leaders.

Aurora is for women up to senior lecturer level or professional services equivalent in a university or higher education college, ambitious for a career in the sector and interested in exploring leadership and management as one option for progression. As we are asking for an institutional commitment, in most circumstances applicants will have been nominated by a central area such as the office of the vice chancellor, the human resources or staff development department or by individuals such as the institution’s ‘Aurora Champion’.

An application from an individual with independent funding (e.g. from department, faculty or project funds) will be considered providing she is able to arrange an appropriate mentor. We ask that applicants will be enthusiastic about their own development, able to attend all parts of the programme, willing to engage in some self-directed learning and with a strong desire to engage productively with their mentor. We hope that the applicants will also wish to take part in the longitudinal research study of the Aurora programme in which the success of the programme will be tracked over time.

Aurora consists of five interlinked days - four development days and an action learning set. Aurora is organised regionally, to allow for shorter travelling times and lower costs. Each applicant will attend each of the development days - Identity, Impact and Voice; Power and Politics; Core Leadership Skills; and Adaptive Leadership Skill, plus an action learning set*.

Whilst it is assumed that most participants will attend the development days most conveniently placed to their home institutions, Aurora has been designed to allow for maximum flexibility for the women attending. So if one or more of the dates at the local venue are problematic, the participants may choose to opt for a more suitable day at a different venue/locations without additional charge.

*Please note, that as the action learning sets are to be organised locally within each region applicants will be expected to attend the ALS date associated with the venue they have chosen for ‘Power and Politics’.

Aurora addresses core areas associated with leadership success:

  • Understanding organisations and the sector
  • Developing leadership behaviors, skills and knowledge
  • Identifying and overcoming barriers and obstacles
  • Growing confidence and a leadership identity
  • Building networks, coalitions and support processes

Aurora will address these areas by using a combination of development days (four, at approximately monthly intervals); self-directed learning that follows the interests, needs and time constraints of participants; action learning sets organised and delivered locally and in-house mentoring.

Development days: these are held in large regional venues with the cohorts usually being drawn from the same region. These days combine the best of conferences (significant key note speakers, open space technologies, outstanding networking opportunities, energy and dynamism) with the best of development workshops (interactivity, small group work, individual reflection, sharing of experiences and learning from role models). The development days will provide inspirational stories, guidance for growth of skills and knowledge, opportunities to share solutions to common problems and signposting for further learning. The subjects of the development days are:

Identity, impact and voice
Participants will investigate the nature of leadership and what it means to them, look at leadership theory and learn about the importance of visibility and ‘voice’. Issues around values, authenticity and style will be addressed along with what the participant wants and can offer within a leadership role.

Power and politics
Under this heading the cultures and politics of organisations will be investigated along with individual responses to them and ways of working within them. Participants will be encouraged to think about building coalitions, develop networks and make lasting mutually supportive connections.

At this development day participants will be placed in action learning sets. This will be a prelude to day three a full day action learning set locally delivered (*see below).

Core leadership skills
This day will introduce the key skills needed by all leaders and managers and consider whether there are any ‘female’ ways of leading. Communication, influencing, team building and team working, building a vision and developing strategy will be considered.

Adaptive leadership skills
Leadership is really tested when the environment is challenging or there aren’t easy answers. A leader’s attitude to risk and challenge and their ability to take the long-term view are essential in this context. This day will look at how the process of adaptive leadership could enhance your performance and success.

Self-directed learning: throughout Aurora, four streams of self-directed learning that echo the subjects of the development days will be available. Participants may follow the stream that precedes or follows the development day they are about to attend or have just attended; or they may focus on a stream that particularly interests them and follow it throughout the programme. Those with more time may choose to engage with all of the streams for the duration of the programme. The self-directed learning will include reading, reflection, activities and challenges and be provided via on-line links to specially commissioned materials, internet articles and websites and via an Aurora community mail list.

Action Learning Sets*: the middle day of the programme is scheduled as a locally organised action learning set. The participants of these sets will be identified on development day two and it will be the responsibility of the set to organise a meeting, venue and manage the process on the day. Participants of each set will utilise the sessions to air their personal work-related challenges and seek support through the action learning process to identify solutions and next steps. Whilst only one formal ALS is scheduled it is anticipated that institutions will support Aurora participants in maintaining these sets as a positive approach to problem solving and as a way of developing networks, sharing good practice and learning from experience.

Mentoring: Aurora participants are required to have a mentor to support and guide them throughout and after the end of the formal learning process. Usually these mentors will have been identified by the HEI’s ‘Aurora Champion’, the central HR or staff development department and may be part of an existing mentoring scheme. Mentors may be male or female (depending on the preference of the mentee) and be well-established and knowledgeable members of the institution who will usually be more senior than the Aurora participant.

For the individual
Aurora will provide:

  • An introduction to leadership in higher education
  • An opportunity to identify and build a leadership identity
  • Thought-provoking and challenging materials and activities
  • An experience of collaborative problem solving processes
  • A network of early career women from across the sector
  • Inspirational stories
  • Successful female role models
  • An in-house mentor for on-going support and guidance
  • A positive view of leadership as a route to career progression
  • Access to the Aurora on-line community

For the institution:  Aurora guidance for institutions
Aurora will provide:

  • Early career women with a growing interest in leadership roles
  • Experienced role models and mentors who can others in house
  • A regional network of women to offer support and guidance to the Aurora participants
  • A pool of potential female applicants for promoted posts
  • An understanding of issues and barriers faced by this key group of staff

 

The University of Stirling is fortunate to employ many talented women. Their skills, experience and knowledge contribute to our ongoing success. We are keen to further explore ways that recognise, value, encourage and empower women and ensure they have the opportunity to fulfil their potential. The Aurora project will assist institutions and individuals by providing a practical and enduring learning experience for women. I wish the project every success and look forward to positive results.
