ELATE at Drexel, a national leadership development program for senior women faculty in STEM, has selected professor Jennifer Barton as a 2017-2018 fellow.
Barton, who currently serves as interim director of the BIO5 Institute, joins 26 experienced and diverse women faculty from 23 different U.S. and Canadian institutions in the yearlong, part-time program. ELATE's stated goals for its fellows include helping them:
- Improve their personal and professional leadership through professional and peer coaching and evaluations.
- Learn how to understand and navigate organizational dynamics.
- Expand their knowledge of strategic finance and resource management at the institutional level.
The program begins in May and runs until March 2018. During that time Barton will continue her teaching and research activities at the University of Arizona.
