Staff Members Selected for Emerging Leaders Program

emerging leaders 2018 cohort

Duke University School of Nursing is proud to announce the ten staff members chosen to participate in the 2018-2019 DUSON Emerging Leaders Program.

The Emerging Leaders Program identifies and develops DUSON staff by helping them prepare for future career growth and opportunities within DUSON and beyond. This unique program was created through a collaboration between School of Nursing Human Resources and the Learning and Organizational Development Office. It focuses on helping participants expand their understanding of their leadership capacity and develop the skills that will help set the stage for their future career success.

Participants were nominated by their Associate Dean or Executive Vice Dean and were reviewed by members of the Dean’s Executive Committee. They were selected based on the following criteria: having significant potential to grow and become a leader in the future, previously demonstrated leadership in informal ways, work at least 30 hours per week at DUSON and having maintained good or excellent ratings on their Performance Evaluation and Planning form.

Participants will attend monthly, full-day sessions where they will build professional skills and engage in discussions with DUSON leaders about their leadership journey and advice. The program cohort will complete one project that features a real-life DUSON improvement initiative tied back to an operational or strategic improvement need.

Participants of the 2018-2019 cohort are as follows:
