Quote-gradient I cannot recommend the elates program highly enough. This well designed program has enabled me to greatly enhance my leadership skills while also forming a close, supportive network of talented women colleagues. It is not an overstatement to say this experience was transformative for me.
Anne M. Robertson, PhD, Associate Dean for Faculty Development, University of Pittsburgh
Quote-gradient This experience has made me more collaborative. I feel I now have better ways of interacting with my colleagues, better ways of working to achieve a goal. It has also helped me a great deal in realizing my strengths and realizing my limitations and where I need to put in more work. Most importantly, it has helped me to see how the university works as a whole and not as individual units that are disconnected.
