Sharing leadership insights from our Aurora contributors and participants, discover the journeys and experiences of these women who champion leadership development in higher education.
Vijaya Nath in conversation with Harriet Minter
Vijaya Nath, director of leadership development, spoke with Harriet Minter, journalist and broadcaster, about women in leadership. Formerly editor of the Women in Leadership section of the Guardian, Harriet is a returning contributor to Aurora where she shares her personal leadership insights.
Over three interviews Vijaya and Harriet discuss the opportunities and challenges facing women leaders, both in higher education and around the world.
Vijaya and Harriet discuss the under-representation of women leaders globally and how we can keep the conversation going, and how reaching a critical mass of women in leadership can, and will, change society.
Vijaya and Harriet discuss Harriet's former role running the Women in Leadership section at the Guardian and her work on #ShePersisted, discovering her true purpose and motivation, and how to use these skills to overcome the things we can’t control.
Vijaya and Harriet discuss the challenges for women leaders in higher education, the importance of resilience and how to achieve this, and what advice Harriet would give her younger self.
Watch our participants from year one of Aurora talk about their experience of this women-only initiative and the impact it has had on them so far.
