Leaders and Organizational Development: A Gender Perspective (Tina Nunno)
The session will discuss the elements of organizational development including power, status, and conflict management techniques. Ms. Nunno will explore the differences in leadership priorities and styles between men and women; and how gender dynamics change when women achieve the most senior position in their enterprises.
Women in Leadership at UBC (Dr. Rachel Kuske)
Dr. Kuske will host a conversation on how UBC can build on its commitment to advancing women and gender diversity in leadership. This session will put forward a variety of questions to address culture shift, communication, and awareness for a sustained diversity in leadership.
You are invited to the event to explore new concepts and ideas for navigating gender dynamics in an organizational setting, and learn what UBC is doing to encourage the inclusion of women in leadership and technology fields. Not only is this a great networking opportunity, but participants will also be able to uncover new strategic methods to support the inclusion of women in leadership and technology fields.
