ITLP and ITELP Nominations Now Open
You're invited to nominate yourself or others for the IT Emerging Leaders Program (ITELP) and the IT Leaders Program (ITLP).
Please submit nominations by Friday, August 18.
Who is eligible for ITELP and ITLP
ITELP is for anyone in the IT community — team lead, technical staff, individual contributor, front line manager, etc. — who wants to improve their skills in leading by example in their current role. The next ITELP session is October 2017 through June 2018 and is held at Cornell. Up to 30 people from units across campus will be selected for ITELP. See the ITELP page for details.
ITLP is for IT community members who have management aspirations and whose managers believe they have the skills to be a future manager at Cornell. It is also for those already in positions of leadership who wish to improve their skills. The next ITLP session is January through September 2018, and is held at locations around the country. Other leading universities such as Stanford, Harvard, and Yale also participate in this program. Six leaders from units across the campus will be selected for ITLP. See the ITLP page for details.
How to nominate yourself or others for ITELP or ITLP
Interested individuals should discuss the opportunity with their supervisor or director and work with them on the nomination. If you'd like to nominate someone else, think about who you see as the technology leaders of today and tomorrow. Keep in mind that nominations need to be supported by the person's supervisor or director.
The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, August 18, 2017. Please direct any questions to Debra Howell.
Within the IT@Cornell community, technical skills and leadership are valued as much as management skills. You're encouraged to identify opportunities for yourself (or staff you manage) to learn new technical skills and keep current skills fresh. IT training workshops, Lynda.com, and Skillsoft cover numerous topics.
Networking activities that extend beyond our campus borders are another great opportunity. Some excellent examples include the Cloud Forum led by Sarah Christen and the IT Security Summit led by Wyman Miles.
