Ireland

The 30% Club Ireland officially launched in January 2015. The initiative has already attracted over 100 chair supporters and is quickly gaining momentum. The aim is to build on the positive experience of business-led change in the UK and the collaborative approach of men and women working together to effect change. The intention is to globalise a number of existing 30% Club initiatives (Investor Group, Cross-Company Mentoring, the Professional Services Firms’ Initiative and Career Strategy workshops, for example) and to develop new specific efforts relevant to the local market.

  • Scholarships

    Main aims

    Globally, the 30% Club is establishing partnerships with a number of business schools to rectify the under-representation of women pursuing post-graduate management education, by offering scholarships aimed at women. Through these partnerships, we seek to build a continuum of change, helping women to make the decision to undertake further education.

    IMI

    At the official launch of the 30% Club Ireland in January 2015, it was announced that a 30% Club Ireland/IMI scholarship was to be awarded by the IMI on either its Diploma in Strategy or Innovation as part of IMI’s pathway to a Masters in Business Practice. Due to the high calibre of applicants, the IMI awarded two scholarships; one to Sophia Long, BNY Mellon and one to Trish Twomey, Concern. 

    The IMI has partnered with the 30% Club Ireland once again to offer one high potential female executive a fully funded scholarship, valued at €10,000, to avail of an IMI Diploma in Leadership or IMI Diploma in Strategy and Innovation. This scholarship is for the 2016 programme run and will commence in Spring 2016. Applications are now open and will close on 31 March 2016. For further details please see IMI website.
