Eligible applicants include women staff members and their allies who:
Have been employed at least one year full-time at Georgia State
Have job responsibilities equivalent to that of an assistant director or above, supervise employees, or oversee large programs and/or complex projects
Have demonstrated high performance in professional experience
Have shown high potential for advancement and enhancing their skills and abilities as leaders
Membership in the ELAW class is rewarding but also demanding. It requires a substantial commitment of time and energy as well as full and active participation. The program is designed to maximize interaction between participants, so any absences will affect the group as a whole.
A less-than-full commitment is unfair to fellow participants and to the many qualified candidates who were not accepted. The program year spans an eight-month time frame. Attendance is mandatory for all program events, including all workshops, and graduation.
Before applying, please review the schedule at the bottom of this page. Sessions will meet monthly in-person for a full day (9am-4pm) at the Downtown Campus unless noted.
There will also be a collaborative group project that will require time outside of the monthly sessions to complete.
A selection committee will review application materials and invite applicants for in-person interviews. The committee will assess the overall strength of the applicant, with specific attention to leadership characteristics, skills, and educational and experiential backgrounds. Applicants will be notified of the results by the end of May.
Applications are due April 1, 2024.
NOTE: Please make sure to put your first and last name at the start of the file names for the resume, letters of recommendation, and any supplementary files that you upload here. This is important so that we can keep track of your documentation.
