Mindfulness for Women in Leadership

Join WESK, Erica Carleton, and Megan Walsh for this 1-hour free webinar to learn how mindfulness may help women overcome gendered challenges related to obtaining and maintaining leadership positions.

Presented by: Erica L. Carleton, PhD & Megan Walsh, PhD, Assistant Professors at Edwards School of Business, University of Saskatchewan


Dr. Erica Carleton is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Edwards School of Business. Dr. Carleton’s research interests include two separate but often overlapping research passions, namely (1) leadership and (2) employee health and well-being. She is fascinated by leadership behaviors and what predicts high and low quality leadership. She is also interested in women and leadership and the barriers women face to obtaining and maintaining leadership positions. Her interest in employee well-being has led her to investigate the non-work antecedents of well-being, especially different physiological and psychological predictors, such as sleep. She conducted her dissertation research on sleep, well‐being and leadership. She is a co‐editor of the book Sleep and Work: Research Insights for the Workplace (Oxford University Press, 2016). Dr. Carleton is also a certified leadership and well-being coach.
