Event Details

DMU supports an international panel event on unlocking female leadership for innovation and commercial growth in Leicestershire, and leadership cultures and practices that drive innovation. We will draw on the expertise of Dr Heather Melville OBE, director at PwC and Chair of CMI Women; Katie Palencsar, the fintech leader and director of the New York Female Innovators Lab; and Eileen Richards, the Chair of the East Midlands Chamber.   

What will we cover? 

We will discuss key themes with an international panel of experts, covering a wide spectrum of business – from start-ups to multi-nationals, and with an expertise in sectors from finance to technology.

We’ll be focussing on three key areas:

  • the role of female leadership in unlocking business growth
  • the leadership cultures and practices that drive innovation
  • empowering women for innovation and business leadership

Who are the speakers and panellists? 

Our event will be chaired by Rachel Granger from Leicester Castle Business School and Helen Donnellan, Director of Enterprise and Business Services at De Montfort University.

Panellists for the Q&A include:

Dr Heather Melville OBE, Head of Global Client Experience at PwC and non-executive Director and Chair of CMI Women.

Katie Palencsar, Head of the New York Female Innovators Lab.

Eileen Richards MBE, East Midlands Chamber and co-Chair of Enterprising Women.

Prof Heather McLaughlin, Dean of Leicester Castle Business School.

What will you take away from the event? 

We will be producing an event booklet for you to take away.  We will also share with you lots of advice and details of useful networks that support female innovation leadership practices.  We’re also hoping to have another event in the future, bringing together representatives of this diverse support for female leadership in innovation.

Who should attend?

Entrepreneurs, innovators, HR personnel and those interested in understanding how female leadership provides the competitive edge for future growth.
