Diversity & Difference cluster with Bournemouth University
Dr Parisa Gilani, Deborah Taylor and Melissa Carr are academics in the Faculty of Management at Bournemouth University. In 2016, we ran a pilot Developing Women Leaders programme.
The 2016 programme was very positively received and we are running it again this year under the new name of ‘Shine’. Shine Theory is a term first used by Ann Friedman based on the concept ‘I don’t shine if you don’t shine’, recognising the importance of supporting each other.
The goal of the Shine Leadership Programme is to offer undergraduate students an opportunity to reflect on some of the gendered discrimination that occurs within the workplace. As such, the aim is to raise awareness of some of these issues before entering organisational life, build a network of Shine ‘alumni’, and gain the benefits from external speakers’ advice and experience.
