This three-part series examines the role of Inclusive Leadership in achieving inclusion and belonging within the work environment to enhance work outcomes, communication, and innovation.  Faculty members with leadership roles and supervisory responsibilities develop strategies and practical skills for increasing inclusiveness within their work settings.  Intercultural fluency is a foundation of Inclusive Leadership at NYUAD, and this program integrates principles from the  Intercultural Learning Program  (ICLP), a series developed for members of the NYUAD community.

ICLP's curriculum is based on the Intercultural Development Continuum and incorporates systems thinking (Kim, 1999), Hofstede's cultural orientations (Hofstede, et al 2010), and explores various dimensions of influence and confluence.

The series takes place over the course of a week, and consists of three interactive sessions which are three hours in length preceded by a group lunch.

NYU Women's Leadership Forum

The NYU Women's Leadership Forum concept originated in 2005 when national attention put the role, function, and challenges facing women in the academy into the spotlight. The objective of the NYU Women's Leadership Forum is to foster leadership development, facilitate professional growth, and sponsor opportunities for outreach among women in leadership roles. It is expected that these efforts will create new and exciting ways for women at NYU to take part in the vibrant life of the University. Through professional and personal networking, access to electronic resources and materials, and participation in an array of events such as conferences, guest presentations, and opportunities for professional development, women can exchange information and interact with others who have common interests and goals.

In 2018, the NYUAD chapter of the Women’s Leadership Forum was established by Carol Brandt, Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor, Global Education and Outreach  and Kirsten Sadler Edepli, Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity and in 2019, Theresa Powell, Deputy Chief Human Resources Officer, Employee Relations, Learning and Engagement joined the NYUAD steering committee.  The NYUAD Women’s Leadership Forum hosts events throughout the academic year, including celebration of International Women’s Day,  a speaker series and networking events.
