ASDC launches brand new emerging leaders programme
Applications are now open for the ASDC Emerging Leaders Programme; an introductory programme for emerging leaders in Science and Discovery Centres that has been designed to support the development of our next generation of leaders . Over 3 months a cohort group will explore how great leadership can transform organisations. Fellows will learn about adaptive leadership practices that can help our field to become more inclusive and engaging for the whole community. It is intended to be the starting point on a leadership journey, that may see participants seek out further learning opportunities as their careers develop.
This programme is an investment into our emerging leaders, providing skills, approaches and practices that can nurture and support the participants to become the inclusive and dynamic Science Centre leaders for our future.
Moving away from the traditional view of leaders as the inspirational hero and sole decision maker, this course embraces the skills and attributes for inclusive leadership for the future of Science Centres as valuable and open community assets.
“Leaders are at the heart of their network, not at the top of the pyramid”
The (extended) deadline to apply for this programme is 15th June 2021
