You are invited to the UCD Smurfit Women, Inspiring More' International Women’s Day Event: “Throwing out the rulebook: Leadership in times of crisis.”
Following on from our January launch, we hope to continue to form a network to discuss obstacles faced by women in the professional world to prepare both women and men for the transition to the workforce.
This month's event will feature a panel discussion with Mark Ryan, former Country Managing Director of Accenture and a Non-Executive Director of Wells Fargo Bank International, Publicis, PwC and DCC. A long time advocate of gender balance in business, during his time in Accenture, Mark created the successful Accent on Women (AoW) programme designed to develop a clear career path for women in business. We will also be joined by Sharon Cunningham, a UCD Smurfit MBA alumna and CEO & Co-Founder at Shorla Pharma, a female-led healthcare company focusing on the development of innovative drugs for women’s and paediatric cancer. Sharon was named Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur 2019 and recognised as one of the 100 most influential CEOs in Ireland by Business & Finance Media Group 2020.
The discussion will be moderated by Caitlin McBride, current MBA student and author of “The Day That Changed My Life: Inspirational Stories from Ireland's Women.”
