Nurturing the Future: Women Leaders on the Road to Advancement


Sep 20, 2017 11:00am - 12:00pm CDT
HIMSS Learning Center

Perceptive women leaders who are advancing through the ranks recognize the power of sponsorship, the importance of inclusiveness, and the avoidance of unconscious bias. While recognizing these characteristics can be viewed as both an art and a science, our presenters will share their personal stories of their leadership journey to include barriers encountered and accelerators for advancement. In this interactive presentation, you, the attendee will be challenged to ask the question "What are you doing (or will you do) to foster growth as an emerging leader?"

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss best practices for identifying and nurturing emerging leaders
  • Outline the differences between sponsors, mentors and coaches and “why” all are important
  • Define unconscious bias and the negative impact to nurturing emerging leaders
  • Discuss strategies that support and move women leaders forward in an organization
