You’re Invited: Empowering Women to Lead in Higher Ed

Women of higher education, higher education adjacent fields, or those contemplating a life in academia are invited to join colleagues from the Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts (PCLA) at a professional development webinar for women. This virtual “Inspire” panel and Q/A, offered in collaboration with Wisrwill take place from 11am – 12:30pm EDT on April 21st.

Join with others from around the nation to learn about senior leaders’ experiences persevering within, and adjacent to, the academy. In addition to Kate Volzer, co-founder and CEO of Wisr, three senior leaders from the PCLA membership will be sharing their career/life trajectories:

  • Barbara K. Altmann, PhD, president of Franklin & Marshall College,
  • Brontè Burleigh-Jones, PhD, vice president for Finance and Administration at Dickinson College, and
  • Jesse Gale, PhD, chief communications officer at Bryn Mawr College.

The goal of the panel is to highlight stories of perseverance within and adjacent to the academy including practical advice related to successful negotiation (for one’s self and on behalf of an institution), being true to one’s self in male dominated environments. While the speakers are drawn from small liberal arts institutions, the presentations are broadly scoped to all higher education sectors and higher education adjacent fields (consortia, K-12, foundations, consultants, etc.)

This event is being made possible by generous support from the Booth Ferris Foundation.
