Seminar Objectives

90-Minute Virtual Seminar 

The Leadership Academy Virtual Seminar follows SHM's Leadership Academy format offering breakouts and group discussions. The Seminar learning objectives consist of: 

  • Discussing the importance of leadership in times of crisis 
  • Articulating the necessity of mentorship, sponsorship, and allyship to support leadership structures

During times of crisis, your network becomes even more vital. Successful leaders learn to build a network of mentors, sponsors, and allies who will provide support, feedback, stability, and opportunities.  This is particularly important for women and underrepresented minorities in medicine. Allyship in particular is critically important to changing culture and to support a diverse faculty.

Didactic and moderated Q & A, as well as CME, are being offered as part of this event.
