The UMBrella Group has awarded scholarships to Marianne Gibson, MS, and Emily Lee, MSW, to attend the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) Women’s Leadership Institute conference in Amelia Island, Fla., on Dec. 3 to 6.
Gibson is a program manager in the School of Pharmacy’s Department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR), and Lee is a research and academic affairs strategic administrator at the School of Social Work.
The leadership institute is for women who seek to become leaders in higher education administration. The conference is designed for attendees to hone leadership skills for working in a rapidly changing environment; develop a better understanding of the campus as a workplace and culture; share experiences with others about how campuses are adapting and adjusting to the new reality, and create new personal networks and networking skills to better tap the higher education community.
The UMBrella Group’s missions are to advocate for a culture that embraces flexibility and family-friendly work policies; coach women at all levels of the University; and provide opportunities for women at UMB to connect and engage with a community that supports the success of women.
