University launches new Women’s Staff Leadership Institute

Human Resources has launched the Women’s Staff Leadership Institute, a new leadership development opportunity for UGA staff members that is aligned with the Women’s Leadership Initiative launched in 2015 by President Jere W. Morehead and Provost Pamela Whitten.

Through a nomination and selection process, this annual program will offer a group of UGA staff members the chance to explore leadership opportunities, reflect upon key leadership traits and skills and support one another in issues that female leaders face in higher education administration.

The inaugural Women’s Staff Leadership Institute cohort will meet monthly from April-October 2017 to attend workshops and have conversations with senior administrators at UGA.

The nomination and selection process to participate is now underway. Any UGA staff member with a specific interest in women’s leadership development is encouraged to consider this program.

More information, including nomination instructions, is available at
