Women in Leadership presenter to challenge meaning of leadership

Rebecca Raby, Brock University Professor of Child and Youth Studies, is not entirely comfortable with idea of leadership.

At the next Women in Leadership (WIL) meeting, Raby will talk about her personal reluctance to embrace terms such as leader and follower, and how this thinking connects to her scholarship.

Raby will share stories of her own paths of involvement in “Participation, Facilitation, and Why I Don’t Generally Consider Myself a Leader,” despite having served in what she calls “leadership-type roles.”

“I will also discuss some of the costs and rewards that these different kinds of involvement have held for me,” she says.

Raby’s session is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 4, from noon to 1 p.m. via Microsoft Teams. All who are interested are invited to attend. Details on this and other upcoming Women in Leadership sessions, including dates, descriptions and login details are available on the WIL website.

Women in Leadership is committed to supporting and advancing persons who identify as women to achieve and succeed in leadership. All are welcome. Individuals are welcome to join the WIL channel on Microsoft Teams or to contact Jeannie Mackintosh to be added to the WIL email distribution list.
