Fixing the Lack of Diverse Leadership in Higher Ed

Academic leadership is still predominantly male and white. And though change is on the rise, the pace is slow—too slow. Learn how an academic leader worked—and worked quickly—to diversify her institution’s staff, administration, and board. Understand the barriers she encountered along the way, and how she redefined rules that long went unchallenged. Leave inspired to lead change and accelerate the pace of increased representation at your own institution.
