Talk Title: "A Personal Journey - The Accidental HR Director"

Julie Lloyd, Executive HR Director at LJMU (pictured below) retires from the University in March 2020, after 33 years of service. Julie joined LJMU in 1987 and became Director of Employment in 2000 after serving in various positions. Julie is passionate about the progression of women in the workplace and has always advocated for more women in the boardroom.

In her talk, Julie will explore the critical issues as to why we are not seeing more women in top positions and offer tips and strategies for overcoming the challenges to women’s advancement and career progression. Julie’s talk will be followed by an interactive question and answer session. We expect this to be a stimulating discussion.
