Leadership today is more important than ever as the 21st century brings about rapid and significant change in society and our institutions.  As our communities become increasingly diverse and our international borders become more fluid and narrow, leadership models need to be inclusive and relevant to the diverse populations and leaders in today’s society.  How do we examine and ensure culturally competent and inclusive leadership?  What leadership styles are effective and relevant to our communities today? As our book Diversity and Leadership (Chin & Trimble, 2014) demonstrates, culture matters in leadership.  Social identities and lived experiences influence the exercise of leadership, and social and organizational contexts in which leadership is exercised are shaped by cultural values, follower expectations, and the exchange between leaders and followers.  Drawing on research of diverse leaders, I will discuss developing leadership competencies and promoting organizational cultures toward global and diverse leadership and the barriers that might mitigate against it. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify new paradigms for global and diverse leadership
  2. Describe the influence of gender and ethnicity on the exercise of leadership
  3. Describe how social and organizational contexts interact with leadership

3:15-4:15 pm   Town Hall: Psychologists LEAD

During the town hall, Dr. Chin will discuss her vision of "Let’s LEAD Together with psychologists as Leaders to Empower, Advocate and use our psychology toward actions that make a Difference."  Dr. Chin will discuss how to build a process to listen, learn and co-create an agenda for change. She believes we need to rethink how our structure and processes can be diverse and inclusive of all perspectives.  We also need to empower all voices and figure out how to advocate for all of psychology as well as how Psychologists LEAD can impact current issues in society and our profession.
