Leadership in STEM Series: Advocacy in STEM


Advance your career as an effective, inclusive leader in STEM through this four-part series brought to you by the New York Academy of Sciences with special guest speakers from Pfizer senior leadership. Effective leadership is a key skill for all STEM professionals, but it is often difficult to define and practice. It requires developing and honing a range of personalized skills beyond the technical knowledge acquired from pursuing a degree or working in a lab or school. Aligning these skills with an individual’s values and strengths empowers them to be a positive change agent in the world, uplifting people within and outside a single organization. This four-part series of bite-sized learning webinars are designed to build key skills as a change maker. Participants will have the opportunity to attend the webinars live or on demand. Registration required.
