Power Reimagined: Advancing Women into Emerging Leadership Positions - December 3

This webinar will define the shifting centers of power in academic medicine through a power-mapping exercise. Presenters will compare and contrast emerging with traditional leadership roles, discuss the attributes and skills necessary to attain such roles, identify systemic barriers that impede women who strive for these roles, and discuss institutional and individual efforts necessary to overcome these barriers, including the part that mentorship and sponsorship play. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Define emerging positions of power in academic medicine – are they in the Dean’s suite or the C-suite? 
  2. Explore the similarities and differences between emerging and traditional leadership roles. 
  3. Discuss the attributes and skill sets necessary to attain these roles. 
  4. Identify systemic barriers to emerging leadership positions for women and how they can be reduced/eliminated. 
  5. Evaluate the roles of mentorship and sponsorship in promoting women into these leadership roles. 

Note: We are pleased to offer closed captioning for this webinar.
