Initial Lessons from and Ideas for the NERCOMP Leadership Ecosystem

Tuesday, March 19 | 3:00PM–3:45PM ET | Room 553
Session Type: Breakout Session
In 2018 NERCOMP launched the Leadership Ecosystem to create a digital community around our array of professional development offerings. The ecosystem is envisioned as a resource to help bridge the spaces between these event-based experiences by providing a platform for ongoing dialogue, shared learning, and collaboration. While still in the first months of its existence, the ecosystem has already hosted conversations on topics such as opportunities and challenges in leadership, career development, cybersecurity, and developing your leadership potential. You'll have an opportunity to engage in dialogue with those facilitating the effort, especially to offer feedback and ideas on approaches that might make it more useful to the broader community.
