Empower Your Leadership Story: An Interactive Leadership Development Virtual Workshop

Monday, October 18, 2021

12-2 PM Eastern Time

REGISTER HERE

We will explore the range of forms that leadership may take for you and your colleagues within ESA and in the larger scientific community. During a brief panel, four ESA members will share stories about their own paths to leadership experiences and how they continue to develop as a leader. The panel will be preceded and followed by a series of self-reflections and small-group activities to encourage all participants to explore definitions of leadership, how their view of leadership intersects with their social identities and career stage, and how ESA might be an asset for leadership opportunities and support. The workshop is designed for ESA members at all career stages, identities, and research areas.

Door prize: One randomly selected attendee will win a virtual zoom lunch with ESA president Michelle Smith. The winner will be able to invite three others to join the lunch and each will receive a $25 gift card for a food delivery service.

Due to the popularity of this event, attendance is limited to current ESA members.
