As you can see from below, I am on a panel about Educating Future Leaders in Statistics and Maximizing the Likelihood of Leadership: Perspectives from and on Women in Statistics. I am the only male on the panel. (Not sure how I obtained that honor.)
Does anyone have any thoughts or anecdotes about this topic? While this panel is at the major annual meeting of statisticians, I think the emphasis on women in leadership positions and how they get there.
The date for the panel discussion is
Sponsor: Caucus for Women in Statistics
Organizer: Yulia R. Gel and Amanda Golbeck (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Title: Educating Future Leaders in Statistics and Maximizing the Likelihood of Leadership: Perspectives from and on Women in Statistics
Abstract: In recent years there has been increasing awareness of the need to enhance leadership qualities among statistics professionals. However, relatively little attention has been devoted to selecting, developing and enriching aspects of leadership training. The goal of this panel discussion is to offer fresh and engaging approaches to assist future leaders of diverse backgrounds in converting passion for statistical science into high achievement and responsible leadership, and to identify opportunities to foster their creative outputs and bring forth their voices.
Key words: leadership, gender balance, women in statistics, statistical education, Statistics2013, emerging future leaders
