Endocrine Society – Global Leadership Academy

The Global Leadership Academy (GLA) convened endocrine researchers and clinicians between 5-10 years of completion of formal professional training (post-doctoral training or fellowship) with the goal of providing the leadership skills needed to become the next generation of global endocrine ambassadors. GLA is a multiday experience, beginning with a targeted one-day leadership training workshop led by the Endocrine Society’s top thought leaders and endocrinologists. Participants also attended the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting where they had the opportunity to put their skills into practice by networking with peers and attending plenaries and sessions.

AGA’s Future Leaders Program provides a pathway within the organization for participants to network, connect with mentors, develop leadership skills and learn about AGA’s governance and operations while advancing their careers and supporting the profession. AGA’s volunteer leadership brings their engagement and expertise to the development of strategic initiatives and the execution of programs.
