As a recent recipient of an NSF institutional- level grant and a leader in your field, I would like to alert you to our (NSF-supported) leadership development program for mid-career women faculty in science and engineering.
The Executive Leadership in Academic Technology and Engineering program (ELATE at Drexel(r)) is a program for the enhancement of the professional and leadership skills of women faculty in mid-career (associate or full professor) in science and engineering fields. It is designed for faculty who are in a developmental phase of their institutional leadership, or who are already holding such positions.
We are now accepting applications for its 2013-2014 class through our online application<https://www.icela.net/apply/>.
The ELATE at Drexel program launched in 2012, and is currently hosting its inaugural class of Fellows from some of the nation's leading universities in science and engineering. Over the past year, the program has been recognized with awards from the National Science Foundation, the Sloan Foundation, and the Henry Luce Foundation. Our greatest honor has been to work with the accomplished Fellows and faculty in the program. More information about the current fellows and faculty is available at http://www.drexel.edu/engineering/programs/special_opp/ELATE/
ELATE advances knowledge and skills in strategic finance and management, personal and professional leadership effectiveness, and academic organizational dynamics. Upon graduation, each ELATE fellow becomes part of a community of leaders in higher education that provides continuing support for each member and her organization while serving as role models for the next generation of men and women scientists and engineers.
We would appreciate it if you could distribute this information to your colleagues, and encourage women in current or potential leadership roles to apply. Information provided in the attached brochure.
Applications are due by January 3, 2013.
