As women of color faculty continue to chart pathways into university administration, they enter a space that can be isolating and, in many instances, without mentorship. This one-day workshop is designed to provide women of color faculty who are either entering or considering higher education administration the opportunity to hear and be in conversation with experienced women of color administrators from a diverse representation of institutions. This workshop will offer strategic guidance on pathways and decision making that is unique to the experiences and needs of women of color, as well as offer the opportunity for community building and networking.

Facilitators include:

Dr. Carol Henderson (University of Delaware), Vice Provost for Diversity and former chair of the Department of Black American Studies

Dr. Toni King (Denison University), Associate Professor and Director Center for Black Studies and former Associate Provost for Faculty Diversity

Dr. Valerie Lee (The Ohio State University), Professor Emerita and former Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, Vice President of Outreach and Engagement, chair of English and Women's Studies, and current interim chair of African American and African Studies.

Registration by May 10, 2018 is required and includes the workshop, materials, and meals.
