Women Staff Leadership Development Initiative info meeting set for April 12

Women staff members are invited to attend an informational meeting April 12 to find out more about the Women Staff Leadership Development Initiative (WSLDI).

WSLDI aims to provide a university-based resource and support system for women professional staff members seeking to further their professional skills, including better communication, more collaboration and the development of trust across university units, helping to create a synergy that promotes the university’s best practices. The yearlong initiative, which includes a certificate in Women’s Leadership from Weatherhead Executive Education, is designed to complement the supervisory development offerings provided by human resources.

Research has shown women face particular challenges in the work environment; the program is designed to address women’s issues and challenges within the context of the overall leadership curriculum. Intended to serve the needs of women in a supportive environment, the enrollment is limited to 12 participants per year.

This program is sponsored by the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women and Weatherhead Executive Education.

The information session will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence, Room 9A, located on the ground floor of Crawford Hall. A light lunch will be provided.

Register for the meeting online by April 9.

Interested staff members may apply for the program without attending the information meeting, but attendance will give a more comprehensive view of the program.
