Women faculty take on leadership roles every day, in the classroom, in their department or institution, and in their professional organizations. This workshop is designed to give participants some basic concepts of leadership and allow them to explore what is known about gender and its role in leadership situations, reflect on their own leadership challenges, and do some self-assessment and planning to identify/develop areas for skill enhancement. The workshop, which is open to women faculty at every rank, will include a variety of instructional approaches, including presentation, small group discussion, and experiential learning.

For RIT Women Faculty supported in part by an AdvanceRIT Connect Grant, RIT Women in Science and Faculty Career Development Services.

Read more about Faculty Mentoring @ RIT

"Mentoring is not just for new faculty. All faculty members can benefit from purposefully developing a network of contacts and advisors who can help them navigate different phases of their careers. Senior faculty who act as mentors find they are reinvigorated by working closely with newer faculty and supporting their success."
