Women for Change

Finding your voice and leadership skills – Denice Scala

There can be times when it’s not easy to speak up and voice your opinion. Sometimes a lack of confidence can hold you back, or a lack of support from others to give you a space to speak your mind. Women can be unfairly disadvantaged by this at university, the workplace and society in general so it is important to understand some of the issues that surround this topic. This module will help you find your voice and get others to listen to you.

Being a leader can be taught! This module also discusses what leadership is, what the key attributes of a leader are and how you can become a leader.
