Leadership and Development Awards Programme: inspiring future leaders in endocrinology

| Society News

We are excited to announce the first Awardees in our new Society Leadership and Development Awards Programme.




This ambitious programme aims to recognise and nurture emerging talent in endocrinology, to help the Awardees become the future leaders of our discipline. A wide range of benefits is available to Awardees, providing opportunities for them to develop their careers and professional profiles. Join us in celebrating our inaugural Awardees, and watch out for updates on their progress over the next 3 years.

‘The Society Officers and Council have introduced the Leadership and Development Awards Programme to help identify and support people who are enthusiastic and dedicated to endocrinology, so they are equipped to be our future leaders. It will provide unique opportunities for the Awardees and I hope it will help to support the careers of our talented trainees.’

Graham Williams, President, Society for Endocrinology

‘I joined the working group and the selection panel for the programme as I believe clinicians with an interest in endocrinology should be given every opportunity to develop their profile. The number of applicants for the clinicians-in-practice group was smaller than for the other categories, but applications were of equally high quality. In the future, I hope we see higher numbers of clinicians applying for this programme. Congratulations to our current Awardees and good luck to all future applicants.’

‘Working on this, from its inception, through its evolution and finally culminating in the selection of the first round of Awardees has been a hugely positive experience in so many ways. It has been terrific to see such an important initiative put into place in a relatively short period of time. One of the most encouraging things was to see the quality of the applications from the next generation of scientists and clinicians. With the support that the programme has to offer, I really do hope that we are able to further the development of the Awardees, and I have no doubt that they will become leaders of the future and contribute to the ever-growing success of the Society, becoming ambassadors for UK endocrinology on the international stage.’

‘The development of this Society programme, to nurture up-and-coming leaders in endocrinology, is inspirational and forward-looking. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the working group that helped develop the programme and then to be part of the selection panel that had the hard task of deciding on the Awardees. It was a difficult decision as the calibre of applicants was very high. The future of endocrinology and of the Society is looking very bright!’
