Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is now seeking nominations for the sixth cohort of the Leading Women@Tech program.
IDEI launched the Leading Women@Tech program in response to the 2012 Campus Climate Survey, through which professional development opportunities for women staff members were requested.
Pearl Alexander, executive director of diversity, inclusion, and engagement and program director said, “Leading Women@Tech is designed to facilitate women’s professional development and academic and administrative leadership, and to build a community of leaders across the Institute who will advance a culture of inclusive excellence.”
This year’s program will run from September through December and close with a community conversation next January. An emphasis will be placed on networking and engagement of the entire Leading Women@Tech community during the spring semester.
“The curriculum is streamlined to integrate storytelling, self-efficacy principles, emotional intelligence, contemplative practices, and race dialogue,” added Alexander. “These are foundational skills to lead through unprecedented uncertainty and will serve leaders by increasing self-awareness, resilience, and effectiveness in a multicultural environment.”
Nominations are accepted until June 13 and can be completed at b.gatech.edu/3dGOovx.
