IWD: Creative Leadership Review

12 Mar, 2020

We were delighted to host a panel of speakers on March 4th as part of TU Dublin’s celebrations of International Women’s Day 2020.

The theme of IWD 2020 is #EachforEqual - An equal world is an enabled world. 

The panel was introduced by Professor Yvonne Galligan, EDI Director who stressed that TU Dublin puts equality at the core of its mission and activities. Dr. Caroline O’Sullivan, Head of Creative Media, then facilitated a discussion on ‘Creative Leadership’ with Eileen Daly, Disability and Human Rights Activist; Sylvia Gavigan, Honorary Consul of Uganda to Ireland; Gráinne Crabtree, Rugby Referee; and Cllr Punam Rane, Fine Gael. 

Panellists talked about the importance of self-belief and knowing your worth, the inevitability of failure and setbacks, the importance of paying attention to our responses to setbacks, and the impact of wider structural conditions on choices and achievements. You can watch our video here.
