Participants will talk about elements of dysfunctional and nonproductive behavior that limit the best thinking from being brought to the table and processed constructively and focus on tools and interventions to help “lead” a group into more effective discussions that bring out the best thinking, solutions and outcomes. During this workshop, we will suggest tools and interventions to facilitate the best thinking, solutions and outcomes for the group.

Achieving Leadership Equity In Medicine:  Collaboration, Innovation & the Imperative for Systemic Change 12PM-1PM, URMC Class of ’62 Auditorium

Presented by: Nancy Spector, Executive Director ELAM

In its 24 years, the ELAM program has had remarkable success with a measurable impact on the number of women in academic leadership positions. Despite this, we are still a long way from achieving equity at every level of leadership. By making critical systemic change we can accelerate the impact. In this presentation, Dr. Nancy Spector, will present novel ways to create measurable change through evidence- based and best practice approaches, including establishing policies that ensure equity, analyzing the inequities in our organizations, engaging male allies, utilizing sponsorship and using collaborations and innovative diffusion techniques through social media.
