Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Welcomes Nominations for 2020 Leading Women@Tech Program

Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (IDEI) is now seeking nominations for the fifth cohort of the Leading Women@Tech program.

With support from the Office of the President, IDEI launched the Leading Women@Tech program in 2016 to facilitate women’s professional development and academic and administrative leadership, and to build a community of leaders across the Institute who will advance a culture of inclusive excellence.

Pearl Alexander, executive director of diversity, inclusion, and engagement, and program director said, “This cohort will partake in a revised virtual and truncated development experience with women managers at a few different levels. The 2020 cohort will also be larger, to include up to 30 women.”

This year’s formal program will run September through December and close with a community conversation next January. An emphasis will be placed on networking and engagement of the entire Leading Women@Tech community during the spring semester.

“The curriculum is streamlined to integrate storytelling, self-efficacy principles, emotional intelligence, contemplative practices, and race dialogue,” added Alexander. “These are foundational skills to lead through unprecedented uncertainty and will serve leaders by increasing self-awareness, resilience, and effectiveness in a multicultural environment.”

To submit a nomination, including a self-nomination, visit here. Nominations will be accepted through Monday, July 13. 

Following the nomination period, selected nominees will be invited to confirm their participation.
