Nominations due Sept. 9 for Leadership Academy for Women

The Leadership Academy for Women In Science and Engineering, commonly known as LAWISE, 2022-2023 Leadership Series provides a proven, pragmatic roadmap for participants to identify, embrace and amplify their authentic leadership strengths. Guided by women’s leadership expert Jo Miller, participants will explore a set of topics designed to help them advance their careers, expand their influence and impact and take ownership of their career trajectories—with skills to thrive in today’s global, virtual work environment.

This leadership program is designed for early career women and female-identifying scientists, engineers and computer professionals. The program consists of a total of five virtual and on-site sessions that take place October 2022 through April 2023. Participants will have a chance to interact with peers from Fermilab, Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago in smaller groups.

A limited number of participants will be selected. Nominations for this program are due Friday, Sep. 9.
