Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Institute Scholarships

Applications are now being accepted for the Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Scholarships to one of three Diversity Leadership Institutes offered in 2013 by UCLA Anderson’s Office of Executive Education. These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of Dean Judy Olian and are available to staff at Management and Senior Professional (MSP) Grade 1 and above.

A three-day on-campus session is the hub of this five-month leadership experience, with extensive pre-work, assessments, and coaching. Over the length of each program, several components are delivered via web conferencing with faculty and fellow participants. Each participant takes two personal assessments, enjoys three sessions with an executive coach, participates in two Coaching Cluster web conferences, and employs an Action Journal to create a personalized Leadership Action Plan.

During the three-day on-campus session, key topics include:

  • Leadership strategy and achieving extraordinary leadership potential
  • Career management and action planning
  • Negotiation skills
  • Effective team decision-making
  • Mentorship and career-enhancing relationships

The deadline for applications to a Selection Committee that will make scholarship recommendations is November 16, 2012. The schedule appears below.
