Catawba professor at Leadership Institute for Women in Psychology

Professor

Wood

Erin Wood, a tenured associate professor of psychology and Title IX administrator at Catawba College, participated in the 10th annual American Psychological Association Leadership Institute for Women in Psychology in Washington.

Wood was invited by the organization’s executive committee to participate based on her “outstanding career achievements and demonstrated leadership potential.”

Wood attended the  workshop July 31-Aug. 2. Another meeting will be held April 17-18.

Throughout the program year, participants like Wood will have access to webinars in which noted leaders will discuss issues of leadership, scholarship and research, education and development. Participants are also encouraged to connect by telephone and email to discuss issues they are facing.

The institute’s mission is to prepare, support and empower women psychologists as leaders to promote positive changes in institutional and organizational life and to increase the diversity, number and effectiveness of women psychologists as leaders.

Wood said the first meeting was “incredibly stimulating” and that she feels “so fortunate to have been in a room with such successful and strong women leaders and to be connected to such visionary energy.”
