Six women managers at the University of Lincoln have been given fellowships of £1,000 to help further their careers.


The fellowships are part of the university’s Women in HE Management Development Programme which aims to encourage women managers to develop their careers.


A series of tutorials and seminars began in January featuring speakers from industry, academia and the public sector.


The £1,000 career development fellowships were presented to six members of staff by Dr Frances Mannsåker, a Pro Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln.


The recipients were:


·        Pam Dettman, senior lecturer in the International Institute for Education Leadership

·        Dorothy Gennard, a senior lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences

·        Lesley Thompson, information and learning adviser in Learning Resources

·        Carolyn Puzzovio, principal lecturer in the Department of Design

·        Joy Bleach, principal quality officer in the Quality Unit

·        Carrie Osborne, institute administrator in the International Institute for Education Leadership


Applicants to the fellowship scheme must be female managers or supervisors who have worked for the university for at least one year.


“We are very pleased to have awarded our first career development fellowships to six very deserving colleagues,” said a university spokesman.


“We expect that the fellows will use their award as a contribution towards MBA or professional qualification fees, to attend courses or conferences or as seed funding for an approved pilot project.”
