A note from Jane Millar
I attended the first Aurora day of this round in Cardiff on the 15th January. The theme was ‘Identity, Impact and Voice’ and there were over 90 women there from several universities. All our Bath participants were there and a number of us got very wet on the walk from the station – first lesson, taxi next time if it looks like rain! I found the day both interesting and engaging. There was a lot of discussion about how leadership in practice is not simply found in specific leadership roles and we were encouraged to think about how we already ‘do’ leadership in many ways and capacities. I had a badge saying ‘role model’ which felt a bit odd – but again, as we discussed, we are all role models already in various relationships and contexts. What did others think of the day?
