(1) Academic Leadership for Women in Engineering (ALWE)
The overarching purpose of ALWE is to give female academics in engineering departments an introduction to the tangible skills and knowledge needed to pursue and gainfully acquire institutional leadership positions at a university.
Participants in the program will experience two-full days and six interactive sessions that will provide best practices to advance in academia while creating opportunities and mechanisms to network across institutions. To that end, the objectives of ALWE are as follows:
Recognize the various roles associated with holding leadership positions within academia.
Learn strategies and tools to advance in leadership roles within academia.
Learn negotiation skills to use in pursuing institutional leadership positions.
Expand an existing network of women in academia.
Support a community of practice focused on similar goals and faced with similar challenges.
Dates: October 28 – 29, 2016
Time: 8:30 a.m.– 5:00 p.m.
Location: WE16 – Philadelphia, PA
