The relative shortage of female leadership presents an urgent challenge to the behavioral health sector. Technological, financial, legislative, and other factors are advancing and furthering the industry, making gender equality advances paramount. As a group representing half of the targeted treatment population, women should be strategically involved at the highest level in terms of creating new structures, modalities, and paradigms for how treatment is defined, delivered, regulated, and compensated. Women have a unique perspective that is necessary for steering the behavioral health community through the current and upcoming waves of change and transforming present challenges into opportunities for growth.
The 2018 Master Classes will focus on essential factors for leadership success and career advancement. Empowered, high-performing women leaders will share global, practical and personal steps necessary on the road to Leadership. During this class, women will have lecture material and small group experiences, allowing for discovery of current opportunities in the field, as well as guidance on how to follow one’s bliss.
The critical mass indicates that the time is right for women to step up and help guide the future of behavioral health’s choices about how clients are treated, how businesses are structured and operated to comply with legislative policy, how organizations remain ethical and healthy fiscally, and how the economical delivery of quality series can remain sustainable.
