ASCILITE’s Women in Academic Leadership Initiative
This webinar provides information about the Women in Academic Leadership Initiative in preparation for the next round of applications. Come along and hear about the success of the last two years and how you can get involved for 2023-2024.
The program provides mentoring opportunities for academics at levels C and D (or equivalent), with mentors from Levels D and E. The initiative brings together its members via a community approach to support each other to progress in academia. Applicants must be current members of ASCILITE and maintain their membership for the duration of the two year initiative.
The benefits of participation in the initiative include:
- Tips and advice on academic promotion from members;
- Seminars for mentoring on relevant topics suggested by the cohort;
- Expansion of skills, knowledge and experience such as communication, leadership, storytelling, visibility and strategic planning; and
- Opportunity for networking and to create contacts outside of the individual’s own workplace.
