Do you have trouble finding or recognizing your leadership voice? Do you feel like you are talking but no one is listening? In this conversation with my Colleague Irene Seguya BScN, MPhil we explore barriers and enablers and offer specific examples of how nurse and midwife leaders can find and strengthen their leadership voice. Irene and I have personal stories of becoming NM leaders together at a young age, learning on the job, challenging status quos, negotiating for better pay, advocating for organizational cultures that enabled professional development et cetera (sometimes with surprising positive results and other times with epic failures from which we learned valuable lessons). And through those experiences we each discovered and have sustained a leadership voice within the healthcare system and beyond. We share and learn together. The Inspire Leadership Series for healthcare providers are sponsored by Clarke International University and the Health professional Education Partnership Initiative (HEPI)
Meet Paul Karungi, School of Nursing graduate class of 2020. We are extremely proud of everything he has accomplished in his time at CIU. Students like @Karungi Paul are what make CIU great. Here is his story
Meet Alice Asio, a Masters of Public Health Alumni class of 2018. Asio is currently working with Ministry of Health. Here is her experience studying at CIU.
We were delighted to have His Excellence William Carlos, Ambassador to the Republic of Ireland, deliver a commencement speech at the ClU 11th Virtual graduation event. In his remarks to the graduating class he said: ..."In the domain of healthcare, we must never ever forget that every number is a person: a father or mother, a brother or sister, a son or daughter. Today is the official passage of you joining a precious pillar of society--one that seeks to protect and promote the health of others...such a noble profession. We know that being a healthcare worker requires more than just intellect. It is wonderful to see that values were an essential part of your curriculum. It can be said that we make a living by what we get; but we make a life by what we give. As graduates of CIU you are now armed with the relevant expertise to make a difference in your respective communities...May Innovation be your companion". I believe that our graduates, many of whom were at home would find these inspiring takeaways as they embark on their professional careers beyond CIU. We wish you all uninterrupted success
