Effective Leadership Skills Workshop for Women Faculty
Thursday, January 22, 2015
8:30am - 4:30pm
LOW - Max Lowenthal Hall (12), 1105/1115
Women faculty take on leadership roles every day, in the classroom, in their department or institution, and in their professional organizations. This workshop is designed to give participants some basic concepts of leadership and allow them to explore what is known about gender and its role in leadership situations, reflect on their own leadership challenges, and do some self-assessment and planning to identify/develop areas for skill enhancement. The workshop, which is open to women faculty at every rank, will include a variety of instructional approaches, including presentation, small group discussion, and experiential learning.
For RIT Women Faculty supported in part by an AdvanceRIT Connect Grant, RIT Women in Science and Faculty Career Development Services.
