The L-MAP, Leadership and Management in Action Program, is a new active-learning training program for graduate students and postdocs in the biosciences to build a leadership, management, and inclusive teamwork skillset. Trainees work in teams on experiential case studies and activities in the L-MAP curriculum, led by a facilitator with expertise in leadership training. The program meets weekly for 6 weeks and is capped with a writing a leadership statement. Trainee participants are selected through an application process.
This program is supported by a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Guidance for Trainees grant to Drs. Jessica Hutchins (Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences) and Erin Heckler (Office of Postdoctoral Affairs) at Washington University in St. Louis.
