This pilot leadership course is a collaboration between the KU School of Medicine and the Kansas Leadership Center (KLC). The focus for our pilot is enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion in our medical school for students, faculty and staff. A case-based approach will be used to learn and apply the KLC transformational leadership competencies: Diagnose the Situation; Manage Self; Energize Others; and Intervene Skillfully.

In order to leverage the most from this educational pilot, we have selected KUSM faculty and staff who are already engaged in moving our organization forward in diversity, equity and inclusion. They will apply the KLC transformational leadership principles to their work throughout the course.

The course requires participation in 8 live sessions delivered via Zoom with pre-work and project work in between sessions. Course materials will be provided. The course book will be mailed to participants. Other materials will be available at https://kansasleadershipcenter.org/kusm-vp/. There is no charge for the course.
