Leadership & Management SIG


The mission of the LMSIG is to serve as a gathering place for idea sharing, best practice development and ongoing education for genetic counselors in leadership and/or management roles, and those who wish to acquire skills for such roles in the future. The LMSIG seeks to serve as a resource for genetic counselors who are established, new, and/or aspiring leaders or managers. The LMSIG provides opportunities for discussions about challenges and successes, resources to build and foster skills, and best practice sharing in the leadership and management space. Our goal is to connect genetic counselors with leadership/management roles to each other in order to continue development of skills and contribute to best practice discussion.
