ACADEMIC LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR


OVERVIEW

We aim to accelerate the success and leadership development of women in academia. So we created this year-round leadership program for our members who are faculty members, junior faculty, and emerging women leaders in academia, who aspire to ascend to someday become heads of labs and centers, deans, or university presidents.

RATIONALE & OBJECTIVES

The Womensphere Academic Leadership Accelerator Program offers a Summer Program and sessions year-round for Womensphere Global Network Members, designed to enhance the “academic leadership fitness and strength” of women in junior faculty and faculty roles, who aspire to ascend to someday become senior faculty, heads of labs and centers, deans, or university presidents.

We offer advanced education sessions with academic leaders to enable the “leadership fitness and strength” of the emerging academic women leaders in our community.  We also provide Leadership Circles and group sessions that cultivate reflection, ongoing learning, and foster a community of support among emerging women leaders in academia.

These sessions are designed to enhance academic leadership potential, inform professional development strategy, and empower participants towards more effective leadership and management in academia. Much like the rationale for going to the gym to enhance our physical fitness and strength, we believe women in academia can enhance “academic leadership fitness and strength.”  Much like a gym, program participants have the option of joining all or some of the sessions being offered throughout the summer.
