Announcing the ELAM 25th Anniversary 
Institutional Action Project Showcase

ELAM is excited to announce our 25th Anniversary Institutional Action Project Showcase. ELUMs can participate in the IAP Showcase - even if they are not planning to attend the 25th Anniversary - by submitting an abstract about their IAP, if the work on their IAP continued, expanded, broadened, or changed after their fellowship, or their IAP has had a significant impact on their institution or beyond and/or on their career/leadership trajectory.   

All abstracts that meet the above criteria will be included in an Abstract Booklet for the Anniversary event.  ELUMS who are attending the event can submit their abstract for consideration to be presented in an IAP Showcase at the Anniversary event.

The call for abstracts will be announced on January 6, 2020, and all submissions are due on February 17, 2020.

Articles of Note

Modern Healthcare, July 27, 2019:
Modern Healthcare's recent analysis of the 25 highest-paid not-for-profit health system executives captures the reality of C-Suite compensation. All top 25 earners were men. The first woman doesn't show up until No. 33. When we expanded the list, only two women were among the top 50 earners in not-for-profit health systems in fiscal 2017, the latest available data.
 
Inside Higher Ed, August 7, 2019:
Effective leadership is rooted in understanding the leader you currently are as well as the leader you need to become for your unit to thrive, write Elizabeth A. Luckman, Nicholas C. Burbules, C. K. Gunsalus and Robert A. Easter.
 
Harvard Business Review, August 7, 2019:
Advocating for women's advancement at work is integral for improving financial results, gender balance, and diversity in our workplaces and leadership teams. Yet data from the Working Mother Research Institute finds that, while 48% of men say they have received detailed information on career paths to P&L jobs in the past 24 months, just 15% of women report the same. And, while 54% of men had a career discussion with a mentor or sponsor in the past 24 months, only 39% of women did.
Why? Because leaders, the majority of whom are male and white, don't adequately sponsor or mentor people who don't look like them.
 
 
The Chronicle of Higher Education, Academe Today, August 8, 2019:
When it comes to managing a budget, deans are often in the hot seat. They have to be entrepreneurial in how they increase revenue while preserving their institution's core mission.
 
One of the biggest logjams in strategic planning occurs when the process begins without any agreement on how decisions will be made.
 
 
Inside Higher Ed, August 14, 2019:
To make a false distinction between service and administration is counterproductive and harms faculty of color and women, write Carolyn Dever and George Justice.
 
AAMC CFAS News, August 16, 2019:
A Modern Healthcare survey found that 26% of nearly 1,000 women health care leaders experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, and around 32% experienced gender discrimination.
 
 
Inside Higher Ed, August 20, 2019:
Former members of the advocacy nonprofit say that it's not inclusive and lacks transparency. Its leader says there's room for other voices and groups in science's antiharassment movement.
 
S. Georgia Nugent highlights some modes of learning that are especially valuable if you aspire to be a campus leader.
 
 
Inside Higher Ed, August 21, 2019:
Must mandatory diversity and antiharassment trainings consistently conjure up dread, sarcasm and contempt? Deborah J. Cohan suggests some improvements.
 
New York Times, August 21, 2019:
Female doctors are more likely than other professionals to have children and keep working. The reasons offer lessons for other jobs.
