UBC BrownBag Discussion: Women and Leadership

Back to Posts

The BrownBag Series is a monthly event organised by the Society of Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) whose purpose is to provide a place for learning and discussion of topics to help women in STEM fields advance their careers.

Women and Leadership

The traditional concept of “command-and-control” leadership is fading out and is being replaced with a leadership style that relies on influence, not authority. Businesses want leaders that will motivate, build teams, show appreciation to employees and exhibit emotional intelligence, among other traits. Women may have unique personality traits that naturally align with this new leadership style. What are these traits and what can we learn from other female leaders? Join us on March 28th, from 12:00-1:30 pm at the Biodiversity Research Centre Room 224 for a discussion about women and leadership! Tea, hot chocolate and cookies will be served, please bring your own mug. To RSVP, please send an email to scwistbrownbag@gmail.com
