The field of research administration is one of the few business-related professions where women comprise a majority of the workforce. According to Shambrook et al., (2015) "2015 Profile of a Research Administrator," 85% of research administrators are women. However, in spite of this majority overall, evidence suggests that those in the upper-level positions of research administration are overwhelmingly male. During this webinar, we will examine the current state of opportunities for women, investigate the challenges women must overcome, discuss methods of strategic career planning and provide examples of the career path of several female senior-level research administrators. This webinar aims to ignite new ways of thinking about women's roles in research administration by challenging you to explore career advancement opportunities for women.
If you are a woman at any level of research administration who is interested in advancing your career or a man in research administration who is supportive of the efforts of your female colleagues towards advancement, this webinar is for you!
- Identify and create strategic opportunities in order to elevate and maximize your career in research administration.
- Assess and take personal inventory of current roles of women in your organization, determine career goals and proactively manage career paths.
