About the talk
Nadia will share she has learned about leadership and leadership development from the Army. She will then go on to discuss what we value in academia and whether our behaviours are congruent with upholding our values and demonstrate that good leadership is critical to conducting science that is reproducible, interpretable, open and transparent. Lastly, she will ask us to reflect on our roles and responsibilities and our agency to make and influence change.
