Women in Leadership Pre-Course

Come a day early to attend the pre-course on Monday, July 16 from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

This pre-course is designed for both women and men who are emerging or current leaders. Many women naturally possess effective leadership skills and competencies, including demonstrating communication and social skills, utilizing creativity and innovation, problem solving, demonstrating judgment and team leadership. It is important to recognize and represent these leadership qualities and competencies appropriately. The sessions will encourage the participant to examine strengths, leverage mentorship opportunities, and establish a leadership presence as part of developing or helping others to develop a career path. Presented by Shawna L Strickland PhD RRT RRT-NPS RRT-ACCS AE-C FAARC/Presiding
