ELAM Announces 25th Anniversary Event Keynote Speaker: US Women's National Soccer Team Coach, Jill Ellis
ELAM is excited to announce that Jill Ellis, Histori
Head Coach of the United States Women's
National Soccer Team will be the keynote speaker at our 25th anniversary celebration on May 1, 2020! ELAM faculty member Cathie Siders, PhD, will moderate a conversation about leadership with Ms. Ellis.
In 2015 and 2019, the United States Women's National Soccer Team won the World Cup Championship under the leadership of Jill Ellis, making her the second coach ever to win back to back World Cup Championships, and the first female coach to do so. After being named head coach of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team on May 16, 2014, Ellis had to largely rebuild the team while modernizing the way it played soccer. Just a little under 13 months later, she led the team to their 2015 World Championship. At the end of 2015, along with a number of other honors, Jill was named the FIFA Women's World Coach of the Year for Women's Soccer, marking the first time an American had been bestowed with that honor.
Dr. Cathie Siders is a psychologist specializing in organizational consulting and executive coaching. Her professional experience reflects strong interest in the management of workplace conflict, the issues affecting the private and professional lives of women and the leadership challenges of setting direction in organizations. In addition, Dr. Siders has consulted to coaches across multiple collegiate sports and developed a leadership program for the Women's Collegiate Basketball Association with Dr Dianne Murphy who was athletics director at Columbia University.

Supporters of the programs argue that the inquiries distort the purpose of Title IX protections. (PREMIUM)
The Scientist, August 26, 2019:
If members don't explicitly believe gender discrimination exists, they allow implicit stereotypes to sway their decision-making, according to a new analysis of real-world hiring decisions.
Inside Higher Ed, August 27, 2019:
A new study based on actual academic hiring data says that committees whose members don't believe in gender bias are less likely to promote women. "Our evidence suggests that when people recognize women might face barriers, they are more able to put aside their own biases," co-author Toni Schmader, Canada Research Chair in Social Psychology at the University of British Columbia, said of the study, published in Nature Human Behavior. "We don't see any favorability for or against male or female candidates among those committees who believe they need to be vigilant to the possibility that biases could be creeping in to their decision making."

In learning how to be a dean, the magic is in distinguishing between what requires compromise and what must be an executive decision.
Anne Litwin's New Rules for Women Blog, September 2, 2019:
In a recent article, I wrote about class-action settlements won by fathers against a handful of large companies that have brought about change. While only a minority of companies offer paid parental leave, a new federal lawsuit filed against Jones Day, one of the nation's largest law firms, promises more change.

Call for Nominations for the Canada Gairdner International Awards and Canada Gairdner Global Health Award
Annually, seven awards are given: five Canada Gairdner International Awards for biomedical research, the John Dirks Canada Gairdner Global Health Award, specifically for impact on global health issues, and the Canada Gairdner Wightman Award, reserved for a Canadian scientist showcasing scientific excellence and leadership.
Laureates each receive $100,000 CDN that can be put towards anything the laureate wishes. Past laureates have used their winnings to support their labs, their research or even paid for their niece to attend medical school.
Nominations are due on October 1, 2019 for the 2020 Awards and we are dedicated to increasing the diversity and breadth of our nomination pool.

AAMC CFAS News, August 23, 2019:
Can we learn lessons about resilient leadership from studying wasps? Researchers hypothesized that the size and "personality" of a queen paper wasp (Polistes metricus) could have an impact on the success of the entire colony. Sure enough, they found that the bigger and bolder wasps reigned over larger colonies, according to research published in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology and covered in Science News. Although it might be difficult to think of safe ways to measure the boldness of a wasp, the researchers came up with a novel technique: They poked the creatures in the face - up to 50 times - to see if or when the wasps would fly away. While some would take off after one or two such insults, for some, "you can prod them up to a hundred times, and they'll stand their ground," said Colin Wright, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biology at Eberly College of Science at Penn State, and one of the study's authors.
