Tenured women faculty: Applications for professional development program due June 1

Now in its fourth year, “What’s Next? A Professional Development Program for Women Faculty,” is accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Developed and facilitated by Diana Bilimoria, the KeyBank Professor and chair of the Department of Organizational Behavior, and Susan Freimark, associate director of faculty leadership programs, the program is targeted to mid-career women faculty who have achieved tenure (associate or full professor) and are interested in focusing on their career vision and path and enhancing their formal or informal leadership within their academic unit and discipline/profession.

The program will be held over three sessions, with a format of guest speakers, panel discussions, small group discussions and content presentations. The sessions will take place September 25, November 19 and January 28.

The objectives of the program are to enhance leadership and career development skills, articulate a clear career vision, and develop change leadership expertise.

Cohorts will be limited to 25 participants. Each participant will engage in the Emotional and Social Competency Inventory, a 360-degree assessment of leadership competencies. Program content will be geared to professional and personal development for exercising greater leadership in academic units and disciplines. Two individual coaching sessions will be available to each participant throughout the program.

The application is available online at surveymonkey.com/s/WhatsNext2013. The deadline to apply is Monday, June 1.
