The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland has established a new executive education program for women in STEM professions. The Leadership Lab for Women in STEM will provide professional and leadership development for women in technology-driven, traditionally male-dominated professions. Program planners say the Leadership Lab will help participants identify strategies and develop organizational skills and competencies for a successful long-term STEM career.
Kathleen Buse, one of the three faculty members who will be leading the six-day program, stated, “Universities teach skills to solve problems of a technical nature. When someone graduates in engineering, or with a STEM degree, we’re not giving them the skills they need to be successful in an organization. This Leadership Lab bridges the gap between what one would learn in a technical field and being successful in an organization, understanding the dynamics going on and the behaviors within an organization.”
The program has three, two-day sessions beginning on March 27. More information is available here.
