I’ve been learning mostly about the disadvantages and advantages a woman faces in the workplace and how to navigate those situations, how to use the skills that I have, and how I can adapt what I’m doing on the programme and bring it into real life scenarios in the future. My favourite part of the program was definitely the people that I’ve met and the different cultural backgrounds, especially in the future female leaders program there are so many people that have different experiences and have come from different places that have different levels of rights and representation – it’s been really incredible.

The Female Future Leaders programme was an incredible experience. It really broadened my horizons, especially if you have issues with public speaking and confidence – it’s really helped with that.

I really wanted an opportunity to expand my academic portfolio. A simple Google search led me to the Immerse essay competition, and I thought that it would be really great for me because there were a lot of opportunities to explore subject-based ideas in my essay submission.

We’ve learned about intersectionality, womanism, which is a subsection of feminism, and we’ve learned about unconscious bias misogyny. I feel like all of these things are current in real life and are relevant topics that we should be aware of.
My confidence has increased a lot with this course – I’ve been encouraged about public speaking, and I’ve learnt more about eloquence and taking opportunities as they come.

About Symposia Programmes

A “symposium” is a conference of intelligent minds coming together to discuss, explore, and analyse different types of content.

Our symposia programmes are multi-disciplinary courses that cover a wide variety of material that has been carefully designed to stimulate and inspire you to find your place in the world.

The courses are ideal for ambitious and motivated young people who are still deciding on the direction of their life and want to learn about the choices they have available to them.
