The CEED leadership program is an initiative to develop environmental leaders by equipping early career researchers with the scientific and leadership skills necessary to create positive environmental change. The program aims to both benefit participants’ careers and build on the CEED legacy.
The program began in 2014, stemming from an expressed need for training beyond technical and analytical skills. We have 14 participants in the 2014-15 cohort, consisting of PhD students in their second year and postdoctoral researchers, representing almost all CEED nodes.
The program aims to maintain a balance between the theories and practice of environmental leadership development, and flexibility for participants already committed to their studies. More details below, but be sure to read the blog developed and maintained by the participants.
The program involves gatherings of the cohort, focused skill training events, and cohort-designed activities that foster team leadership development as well as personalised action plans for self-assessment and growth.
