10-Oct-2016 Women in Leadership, leading the way from the North Coast.

The gallery for this event is available here


Minister for Justice, MLA Claire Sugden and Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Alderman Maura Hickey were key speakers at the recent ‘Women in Leadership’ event. Organised by the Causeway Enterprise Agency in association with Women in Business on 9th September at Flowerfield Arts Centre Portstewart, it brought together female leaders to hear the political leaders speak.


Hosted by media presenter Sarah Travers, the event was a huge success with women attending from all over the borough to hear the ladies share their leadership experiences and skills as they both work in our political arena representing very different communities.


Minister for Justice Claire Sugden shared her journey on how she became Minister for Justice and how she will continue to represent her local constituency as this is where she was originally voted into office. Minister Sugden is a strong role model, who is young, vibrant and open to discussing issues which many other political leaders tend to shy away from. As an Independent, she also has the political opportunity to address issues and push the system farther than many of her counterparts due to their party politic restrictions.


Mayor Maura Hickey was equally engaging as she took guests through her journey of the troubles when living in Belfast during the seventies, bringing up a family and how she ran a campaign to ensure the first SDLP representative was voted into Belfast City Council. She has continued her journey when she moved to Portstewart and strongly believes in the north coast and what the borough can achieve with the right leadership. Maura is a leader in her local party, and continues to drive development forward for the Borough as she aims to represent both sides of the community. Both ladies worked together when they were councillors in the legacy Coleraine Borough Council and endeavour to deliver strong leadership in their fields.


Jayne Taggart, Chief Executive Causeway Enterprise Agency Coleraine stated, “Mayor Hickey is an exceptional role model ,making a very significant contribution to our Borough since she came into office and everyone has nothing but praise for her in her leadership role. We are also all very proud of Minister Sugden and continue to support her in her achievements at Stormont.


“What came across from speakers including those on the panel, was how open and honest they were in terms of their roles, their journey and their challenges. What struck me was that they are ordinary women who have self-belief and the confidence to grab the opportunities life has thrown at them and in doing so they are making a real difference in our community.


“The event also showed how those attending have the same purpose and potential. I would like to personally thanks all those for coming particularly our Minister and Mayor as it was a great event and a great networking opportunity.”
