• Chiara is selected as 'Aurora programme' participant
The Aurora programme is a women-only career development initiative aimed to develop leadership potential for women in Higher Education Institutions. As part of RCSI, Chiara applied and was successfully selected as an active participant of the Aurora Programme of 2018/2019.
February the 12th was the designated day for "Action Learning set". Overall, the purpose of the day was to bring to the discussion table any issue that participants identified in their work life, and then partake in active engagement to find a solution. Issues were highlighted ranging from struggling with work-life balance to career development: from learning how to manage expectations when on maternity leave to dealing with difficult discussions in meetings.
About the training experience, Chiara states: “I feel like that day not only helped me in resolving my own issues but highlighted to me other types of problems I will probably face in my career at some stage, and how to possibly overcome them in the future.”
