The Women in Science Group
This networking and leadership development group brings together senior researchers and staff from the ICR and The Royal Marsden to help address the inequality in the number of women in the most senior research leadership roles. Topics explored include supporting high-performance teams, influencing skills, personal brand, leadership and mentoring.
Future Female Leaders
Future Female Leaders is aimed at women in their early career who are capable of taking a future leadership role including staff management. It comprises a series of six on-site workshops delivered at the ICR by external consultants, and supported by 360-degree feedback and informal ‘action learning’ meetings, where participants meet to discuss and tackle common challenges.
Aurora Leadership Programme
Each year the ICR sends four women on the Aurora programme, a national women's leadership development programme run by the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education. The programme combines education, mentoring and online resources to encourage women in academic and professional roles to develop leadership skills, and addresses core areas associated with leadership success in research institutions and the university sector.
