Challenge of Science Leadership Workshop

April 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - April 27, 2017 @ 5:30 pm


This training will cover strategic planning and techniques for building more effective research and outreach programs. It is targeted to professional scientists and other environmental scholars who seek to increase their engagement and strategic effectiveness of their work. A portion of the participants will be the current cohort of IonE Associates.

The workshop will be lead by Barefoot Thinking Company, a UK-based group best known in the U.S. for trainings they have delivered to the Leopold Leadership Program. This is the first time that Barefoot is delivering this workshop in the U.S. to an academic audience, outside of the Leopold Program.

Register here by Friday, April 14.

The Institute on the Environment is offering a reduced rate to University of Minnesota faculty, research and professional staff. Registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis for $300 per seat. Typically this workshop costs $1000/person, but IonE has prepaid for a limited number of seats exclusively for our affiliates and colleagues.
