We are committed to develop tools, processes and programs to break down barriers for women faculty to increase their participation in all aspects of our department and in particular the pipeline to leadership roles.
This is a unique program on campus for mid-career faculty and is complementary to the School of Medicine's Women’s Leadership Training. This 9-month program includes five, ½ day in-person workshops, bi-monthly lunch and learns and a 360
° assessment debriefed with an executive coach with individual development planning. Programming provides generalized leadership skill development with a focus on barriers and biases women often face in leadership roles.
Target Audience: Department of Medicine faculty, mid-career, any promotion track, any degree. We seek to build a diverse, inclusive cohort, and welcome applications from any mid-career Department of Medicine faculty seeking leadership training, including – but not limited to – all who identify as women, trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary or genderqueer.
