What is WILD (Women in Leadership)?

Our Women in leadership programme aims to create a network where female students feel empowered and supported to undertake leadership opportunities within the Students’ Union and confident in their abilities. It’s an opportunity to discover your leadership identity and develop key skills that will support you with your future goals and plans.
