Nine University of Georgia faculty members will sharpen their leadership skills as members of the second class of the university's Women's Leadership Fellows Program.
The 2016-2017 cohort, which includes representatives from eight schools and colleges as well as the Division of Student Affairs, will attend monthly meetings where they will learn from senior administrators on campus as well as visiting speakers from academia, business and other fields. The program, which was created in 2015 as part of the university's Women's Leadership Initiative, also features a concluding weekend retreat in June for more in-depth learning.
"The members of this extraordinary class of Women's Leadership Fellows come into this crucial program with an amazing set of talents and experiences," said Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Pamela Whitten. "They will leave it ready to tackle even greater leadership roles at the University of Georgia and throughout academia."
