Learning to lead inclusively

Being a graduate student means taking on many roles—student, researcher, collaborator, instructor, mentor and leader among them. Seeking to enhance their skills, 28 doctoral students participated in the summer 2023 Colman Inclusive Leadership Program.

The three-day immersive virtual program provided participants with knowledge to support their development as inclusive leaders, whether they find themselves in formal or informal leadership roles in their labs, classrooms, student organizations or other aspects of life.

“The Colman Inclusive Leadership Program had a profound impact on me, molding my future aspirations as a professor,” said Samuel Deck, a doctoral student in biochemistry, molecular and cell biology. “Armed with these lessons, I am driven to promote positive change, foster inclusivity and embrace diversity in all areas of my professional and personal lives.”
