The Centre for Research and Education on Women and Work (CREWW) at the Sprott School of Business, Carleton University, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Dawn Rodger Family Bursary for the Management Development Program for Women (MDPW). Dawn Rodger, who graduated from the MDPW in 2011, recently established the annual bursary for participants working in a non-profit, palliative care or social justice position. This bursary, valued at $1,000, will be offered beginning Fall 2011. In establishing the award, Dawn said, "I am a firm believer in paying it forward." Her generosity will help to support other women who wish to participate in the Management Development Program for Women.
The Management Development Program for Women (MDPW) is a part-time professional program designed to provide working women with an opportunity to develop their management and leadership skills in a supportive environment, while having an opportunity to discuss the particular challenges that women face in management. The program meets for 3 days a month for 10 months and covers all functional areas of business. The program is designed to facilitate the transfer of learning from the classroom to the workplace. Workplace based assignments require participants to integrate new theories and skills with data and experience drawn from their own work setting.
