Banco Santander, through its global Santander Universidades division, will launch the third edition of the W30 Program: Developing Women Leaders in University Administration in partnership with UCLA Anderson School of Management to prepare women in university administration for leadership positions of increasing responsibility as the higher education landscape evolves.
The program seeks to to strengthen its relationship with the Santander Universities Network and to establish Santander as an advocate of women seeking to advance in higher education administration by providing them with career development and psychological support, said Rafael Vélez-Palmer, director of Santander Universidades in Puerto Rico.
This year’s session will run June 24-26, and selected participants from the Santander Universities Network will be given the tools, training and knowledge to expand their leadership capabilities and hone their personal leadership styles, he said.
The program includes the costs of enrollment, materials and room and board. Mastery of the English language is required. Interested candidates must fill out an application by Mar. 15. They will need a letter of recommendation from the university for which they work. UCLA Anderson will select and contact the participants.
