Early Career Psychologists (ECPs, within 10 years of graduation) are currently in or aspire to leadership roles in a range of professional settings and organizations, as well as APA and state psychological association governance. This interactive, skill-building program will focus on leadership issues, opportunities, challenges, skills and training, with the last hour for questions and practice.

Topics are from a 2017 survey by APA on leadership training priorities among ECPs. Diverse presenters across the career trajectory have expertise in leadership training, experience with leadership in professional settings and organizational governance, excellent teaching skill, and the ability to address diversity issues affecting leadership.
