Workshops

2022 Annual Meeting

A workshop is an opportunity to share your organization’s unique expertise with Annual Meeting attendees. Workshops are half-day or full-day interactive sessions that can be held prior to or after the Annual Meeting. Workshops can be held by academic institutions, NGOs, foundations, the private sector and government or health agencies.

Due to the high volume of Workshop proposals, we are no longer accepting proposals for 2022. Please mark your calendar for the next Annual Meeting, to be held October 18-22, 2023 in Chicago. We will begin accepting proposals in July 2023.

Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Global Gender and Malaria Community of Practice (CoP) is working to co-create, catalyze and develop a cohesive, strategic and measurable approach that integrates gender into malaria work and identifies gender-transformative opportunities to advance gender equity and the fight against malaria. This interactive workshop is an opportunity for anyone interested in this work to engage and help build a joint advocacy agenda. The workshop objectives include: 

  1. Present and validate the work the Global Gender and Malaria CoP has created via its co-creative process towards developing a shared advocacy on a gendered approach to accelerate malaria eradication.
  2. Use this opportunity to bring together existing and new stakeholders at the local, regional and global levels who are engaged in malaria eradication and gender equality work to expand the membership of the Global Gender and Malaria CoP and further provide input to the advocacy agenda.


Effectively Navigating Organizational Politics
Sunday, October 30, 2022
Seattle Convention Center
1 - 3 pm PT
Must be registered for the Annual Meeting.
In person only.

Register online today!

Organizational politics is a sometimes controversial and hotly debated topic, and it can be particularly difficult for women leaders, especially since they are often denied the space, coaching and ownership to explore such challenges without facing significant risks. This often leaves women leaders with a limited set of choices — embrace it as a necessarily evil, engage half-heartedly or refuse to play the game entirely — despite the likely negative impact on their careers. Research has found that politically savvy leaders have better career prospects, are seen as more promotable and are less likely to have derailed careers. Leaders who stumble through political realities — or avoid or ignore them — are missing opportunities, connections and resources. While the term political skill, or political savvy, generally elicits more negative than positive perceptions, it isn’t inherently a bad thing. Politics are a neutral and natural part of everyday life in organizations, and a skilled leader understands that it is a necessary strategic choice. This session will help the audience reflect on and potentially reframe their relationship with organizational politics. This session is designed to help you:

• Understand organizational politics and examine why they exist and how they function (knowledge and mindset)
• Assess your political environment and gain awareness of your own feelings (mindset)
• Increase your political savvy and practice four key skills to better navigate organizational politics (skillset)
 

*Please note that this session is designed for those who identify as women, but the learnings are relevant to all genders, and everyone is welcome to attend.
