Denice Denton Emerging Leaders Workshop 2016


Register today for the Denice Denton Emerging Leaders Workshop 2016, an exciting opportunity for mid-career faculty members.

Inspired by the work and legacies of Denice D. Denton, a group of faculty recipients of the Denice Denton Emerging Leader ABIE Award are organizing a one-day faculty leadership development workshop on Friday June 3, 2016 in Madison, Wisconsin.

The workshop focuses on the development of skills, knowledge, and critical networks for women and men who are mid-career faculty members in the fields of engineering, computing, mathematical and physical sciences, who are assistant or associate professors with 4-15 years of experience in tenure-line faculty positions. The workshop is being designed to provide opportunities for these faculty members to learn strategies for success from their more senior peers, and to design their own leadership plans while benefiting from engagement with colleagues. Plans are under development to accommodate 75-150 participants.

A primary purpose of the workshop is the development of strong cross-institutional academic peer networks, particularly important for women and underrepresented minority faculty members. Topics addressed through the workshop will include strategies for mid-career development planning, modes of academic leadership, developing and utilizing mentors and sponsors, skills for effective team science, conflict resolution, negotiation, mitigating implicit bias, performance evaluation, accountability plans and practices to improve strategies for inclusion within lab groups, departments, and schools, and work-life integration. The workshop’s intended outcomes are the support and further development of a new generation of academic women and men prepared and energized to be leaders, mentors and coaches and to contribute to transforming the climate for everyone in science and engineering, independent of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, country of origin, and other dimensions of diversity.
