The Curriculum

this is text from

To be a leader you need three things: A desire to lead, a drive to move a group towards a shared goal, and a yearning to learn. Whether you aspire to achieve a higher position with formal leadership authority, or you aspire to increase your influence from your current position, the WIA Leadership Program will prepare you to embrace the leadership challenges that lay ahead, or in front, of you.

We use a developmental framework tailored for women in the health informatics ecosystem. You will explore, develop and distinguish the technical competencies and ethical values that comprise your leadership brand. Our curriculum follows three complementary pillars of leadership:

  • Leader Development: You will focus on developing your intrapersonal potential including self-awareness, self-regulation, self-efficacy, self-motivation, and values clarification.

  • Women and Men in the Workplace: You will focus on recognizing existing artificial and/or structural barriers preventing women from achieving upward mobility and the development of behaviors to help change and circumvent these as women and men work together.

  • Leadership Development: You will focus on applying leader behaviors in developing interpersonal potential in situations of social influence, relationships, and team dynamics to challenge the status quo and promote opportunities for organizational growth, innovation, and positive change.
