Workshop on Launching into Leadership
The IEEE Magnetics Society is pleased to announce a virtual workshop on leadership development skills for women in magnetism. The workshop will be conducted by COACh, an organization at the University of Oregon with over two decades of history in helping women in STEM fields to achieve their career aspirations.
The workshop is designed for women in the middle stages of their professional career (that is, 12 or more years since completing their doctoral or equivalent training) and will consist of three sessions as follows:
- Essentials for Career Advancement (Tuesday, October 25, 9:00am – 11:00am US EDT; 3pm – 5pm CET; 10pm – 12pm JST): Includes communication skills, self-advocacy, networking and mentorship.
- The Art of Effective Negotiation (Tuesday, October 11, 8:00am – 10:00am CET; 3pm – 5pm JST): Includes importance of negotiation, identification of negotiables and finding one's negotiation style.
- Inclusive Leadership (Tuesday, October 18, 9:00am – 11:00am US EDT; 3pm – 5pm CET; 10pm – 12pm JST): Includes concepts of leadership, leadership qualities that lead to success and failure and discusses effective leadership styles for women in different cultures.
The cost of the workshop is fully covered by the IEEE Magnetics Society. Participation is and open to all women members. To allow for fruitful interactions and cohort-building, each session is limited to 15 participants on a first come first serve basis. The timing of the sessions will enable members worldwide to participate in at least one session. Completion of each session will be acknowledged with a joint certificate from COACh and the IEEE Magnetics Society.
To participate, please complete the registration form below no later than September 15, 12pm US EDT. Registration is required for participation. The meeting links will be emailed to the participants a few days after registration closes.
This workshop is a pilot initiative. If successful, we hope to expand the audience and topics in future workshops. Our goal is that, in addition to empowering women with valuable leadership skills, these workshops will help build lifelong cohorts that participants can rely on for support and camaraderie.
