Women's Leadership Roundtable

Devoted to fostering community and developing leadership skills among women faculty and staff, Women’s Leadership Roundtables are enjoyable, informal, and supportive monthly gatherings covering topics like effective communication, mapping a career path, mentoring, dealing with stress, and many more! Each roundtable session will have a different topic/theme and facilitators. Bring your lunch; Faculty Affairs will provide treats and drinks.

Join us in discussing a series of topics where we look at various kinds of intersections—our lives as women in various campus positions, our lives as women of various races/ethnicities, and more. This is a chance for faculty and staff to have informal conversation around the topic of fostering community and developing leadership skills among women on campus. The facilitator may bring a question, quote, short clipping, or other conversation starter. Topics may be modified at the will of the group. 

Past discussion topics have included:

  • Our Jobs: Our Identity?
  • Three Times a Man: To be Raced, Gendered, and Sexed in Higher Ed
  • How to Ask for Things (and Get Them!) Persistence, Assertiveness, and Self-promotion
  • Articulating Accomplishments and Skills
  • The Extra Work We Do

This program provides a valuable means to build relationships across faculty/staff lines, a critical element for engagement across campus. Join us on the training page for more details!

Audience: Faculty, staff, and managers interested in learning more about issues for women in leadership.

Sponsor(s): Faculty Development Program
