Propagating pathways and embracing authentic leadership
Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024
The Women’s Leadership Symposium is a conference focused on women’s leadership for CU Boulder staff and students. People of all genders are welcome. Get ready to explore a variety of ways to develop authentic and empowered leadership skills! More information will be available soon.
Join us as a presenter at the 2024 Women’s Leadership Symposium!
Deadline to submit: January 17, 2024
The symposium explores the variety of ways authentic leadership is present in our communities, empowers confidence in leadership styles and practices, and engages the resiliency in tomorrow’s leaders. Now in its seventh year, the Women’s Leadership Symposium curates a day-long, on-campus, no-fee conference experience in service of the leadership interests on CU Boulder women: staff, students, faculty and their allies. All gender identities are invited to present and participate.
We encourage staff and students to collaborate on proposal submissions that address our key themes:
• Describe gendered challenges present at CU and in the broader workplace.
• Describe a leadership style or core tenet and how attendees can operationalize this style or tenet.
• Connect knowledge and skills to future professional pursuits.
Note: Sessions are scheduled as 75-minute in-person lectures/workshops. This allows for 60 minutes for content delivery with space for community building at the beginning and time to pass out the feedback survey at the end.
As this symposium is for the CU Boulder community, we are not accepting program proposals from primary presenters external to the university. We would welcome submissions from on-campus presenters who are interested in including an external co-presenter/panelist.
The Women’s Leadership Symposium highlights existing CU Boulder leadership resources and provides a place for students, staff and faculty to connect and collaborate.
The Women’s Leadership Symposium seeks to explore the variety of ways authentic leadership is present in our communities, empower confidence in leadership styles and practices, and engage the resiliency in tomorrow’s leaders with CU Boulder students, staff and faculty.
