Academic Coaching for Women in STEM

What is Academic Coaching?

Women form 53.8% of the Higher Education Institute (HEI) sector workforce and occupy 45% of academic jobs. However, as you move up the levels of seniority, the representation of women declines - particularly in academic roles. Across the sector, only 20.5% of professors are women and just 17% of vice-chancellor or principal roles are held by women.

Academic coaching helps to advance women's careers by removing the barriers that prevent them from advancing professionally in the same way that men do. I am a professional coach who supports women in STEM; enabling them to maximise their potential, develop necessary skills (negotiating, influencing, problem-solving, decision-making), and feel more confident in their leadership abilities. As a result, these women become a role model for other women in their field and find a new level of positivity about having successful, meaningful careers.

 

Who is Academic Coaching for?

  • Women who are in their first academic role
  • Women who are post doctoral researchers or early career researchers
  • Women who are wanting to progress in academia
  • Women who are wanting a career move into industry
  • Women who are want to feel more confident in their role
