Afternoon Session:
The Leadership Pipeline: Panel Discussion

The ability to move forward in our careers is important not only for our own satisfaction, but to the functioning of our organizations and fields as well. This applies to skill development, academic advancement, income, and span of organizational responsibility. Healthy organizations recognize this and make sure that people have the guidance, incentives, tools, and opportunities to move up the ladder. Even if the rungs above are occupied, it is important for organizations to keep the low moving upward. Helping employees prepare for greater leadership roles, even if it is in other institutions, keeps people engaged, keeps the pool of prepared leaders full, and creates a more attractive work environment. In this session, we will cover how to assess your organization's leadership pipeline and be sure it is flowing dynamically.

Learning Objectives:
  • Ability to identify the tools available to move up the ladder within their organization.
  • Understand and assess an organization’s pipeline into leadership roles.
