Chancellor's Diversity Leadership Institute Scholarship

Chancellor's Diversity Leadership Institute Scholarship

January 24, 2014

Applications are now being accepted for the Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Scholarship to one of five diversity Leadership Institutes offered by UCLA Anderson’s Office of Executive Education. These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of Dean Judy Olian and are open to staff at Management and Senior Professional (MSP) Grade 2 and above.

A three-day, on-campus session is the hub of this five-month leadership experience, with extensive pre-work, assessments and in-depth post-program analysis. Over the length of each program, other components are delivered via web conferencing with faculty and fellow participants. These sessions include leadership assessments, readings, leadership and career planning, coaching clusters, mentoring, and instruction in such topics as organizational savvy, effective negotiations, and leadership strategy.

Key topics include:

  • Achieving extraordinary leadership potential
  • Career management and action planning
  • Negotiation skills
  • Effective decision-making
  • Mentorship and career-enhancing relationships

The deadline for applications to a Selection Committee that will make scholarship recommendations for all five institutes is December 1, 2010.
