Breaking the Mold: Women’s Leadership in STEM – March 8

On Wednesday, March 8, at 1 p.m., the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility and the Women’s Initiative will honor International Women’s Day by hosting a virtual presentation by Alexis Kanda-Olmstead, called Breaking the Mold: Women’s Leadership in STEM.

Are you leadership material? The answer depends in large part on your identities. Traditional mind models about leaders and leadership skew towards masculinity and other privileged identities, resulting in barriers that hold women back. In this workshop, participants will explore the unconscious biases we have about leaders and re-conceptualize leadership so that it works for, not against, people whose identities do not fit the traditional leadership mold. The workshop includes hands-on skill development for current and future women leaders as well as male allies.
