The new Sprint programme aims to improve the employability of women and advance gender equality.

Aimed at undergraduate women, Sprint is a personal and work development programme. It aims to enable women to take clear, practical and realistic steps to take more control over their lives.

This is being implemented as part of our HeForShe partnership with the United Nations. Jointly delivered by our award-winning Career Development Service and official sponsors Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), the programme will provide women with role models and mentors from both corporate and academic life.

Antonia Jackson, Equalities Project Officer, added: “Sprint allows women to take hold of their personal development, and gives women the confidence to enter fields in which they are currently underrepresented.”

A previous participant in the programme, said: “It was a great experience and would definitely recommend it to other people.”

The programme will launch will a special event on Monday 8 February opened by Professor Helen Atkinson, Head of Engineering and one of the University’s Inspirational Women in 2015.

You will hear from guest speakers, sponsors and previous participants about the benefits of the programme and how it can support them in their development.
