As leaders of organizations which seek to solve many of the world’s largest problems, change is inevitable. When change requires you to challenge people’s familiar reality, they may feel threatened and resist moving forward. This resistance along with outside influences, multifarious challenges and increased competition require associations to purposefully evolve over time and embrace the new paradigm of perpetual change. Leaders need to be able to read the terrain, be prepared for anything and push through to make a significant transformation.
ACCESSE18 endeavors to harness the power and expertise of both the CESSE network and external thought leaders to explore the outside influences, challenges brought on by advances in science and engineering, strategies to successfully embrace change and the critical skill set needed to drive systematic change in an increasingly complex world.
ACCESSE18 is for ALL LEADERS. We define leaders as:
- Aspiring CEOs
- Individuals who seek to enhance their leadership skills and abilities
- Leadership teams
Regardless of his or her role or experience level in leading and managing a science or engineering society. We've organized the conference content and activities around four content categories.
