Creating Leadership Opportunities for Women in Higher Ed

How do we create leadership pathways for women in higher ed?

Reported by Education Dive, Carolyn Stefanco, President of The College of Saint Rose offers suggestions after personally experiencing sexism and discrimination on her upward path.

One is to make women’s history and barriers to equality a part of general education. She also recounts her provost, who offered her management training at Harvard to build up her confidence, and suggests we look for ways to take similar action on others’ behalf.

The takeaway? How do we actively counter discrimination by supporting and empowering women on our campuses to prepare them for the leadership roles we expect them to one day hold?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
