Three faculty from Ivan Allen College have been selected for the fourth cohort of Georgia Tech’s Emerging Leaders Program for 2019-2020. They are Karen Head (LMC), Olga Shemyakina (Econ), and Jennifer Singh, associate professor in the School of History and Sociology. Singh is a sociologist specializing in medical sociology and science and technology studies. Her research investigates the intersections of genetics, health and society, which draws on her experiences of working in the biotechnology industry in molecular biology and as a public health researcher at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
“We are proud of the interest the program has generated among our faculty and are thankful for the support of the Colleges. I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the next cohort of Emerging Leaders at Georgia Tech,” said Rafael L. Bras, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs who leads the initiative. “The program continues to identify talented individuals who are passionate about their leadership journey and in promoting a culture of leadership at Georgia Tech.”
Starting in fall 2019 and continuing through spring 2020, the three, together with 13 other participants from across campus will take part in leadership development workshops, a fall weekend activity, small-group work, self-assessments, and 360-degree assessments.
