Leadership Development Series: Building Community and a Healthy Climate
November 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
This session will focus on how chairs can take actions that positively affect a department’s climate, how to make strides in the areas of equity and diversity, and what to do as a chair (and as a colleague) to stop problems before they happen and what to do to solve them when they do.
The Leadership Development Series, sometimes known as “chairs chats,” offers a variety of workshops and seminars for department chairs and academic center directors, along with associate deans and others in management positions. The sessions – some of which follow the peer-to-peer (“chat”) model, and some of which will be led by experienced chairs and other academic leaders – emphasize the development of aptitudes and skills associated with academic leadership. The offerings can be categorized into four main areas:
- Strategic planning
- Supervision and management
- Budgets and finance
- Climate and inclusion
