UNC Charlotte’s Center For Leadership Science Features New Speaker Series

UNC Charlotte’s Center for Leadership Science is at the forefront of reshaping leadership by leveraging scientific insights. In a bid to disseminate knowledge and ignite meaningful discussions, the center proudly presents the Leading for Impact: A Science-Based Approach speaker series.

Kicking off this series, the inaugural session will take place on Friday, October 20th, at The Dubois Center, nestled in the heart of UNC Charlotte Center City at 320 E 9th Street. Commencing at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and networking, the event, titled “Gender at Work: The Role of Male Leaders as Powerful Allies,” will feature an expert panel discussion beginning at 9 a.m.

Admission to this in-person series is on the house, though we encourage advance registration to ensure your seat. Furthermore, attendees who participate in a minimum of three out of the four sessions will be rewarded with a certificate of completion.

Throughout the series, our esteemed speakers will delve into areas such as ethics, emotions, inclusivity, gender and racial dynamics, the interplay between family and work life, and the analysis of social media’s impact. This speaker series is just one of the ways in which the Center for Leadership Science is actively pursuing its mission to redefine societal perceptions of leadership inclusively, equip leaders with effective strategies irrespective of their background, and enhance organizational structures.

During the inaugural session, our panelists will address the essential organizational and individual practices required to jumpstart gender equality in the workplace, with a specific emphasis on the pivotal role of men in achieving equality.
