Seattle ACE Regional Women’s Leadership Forum

Women administrators serving in mid-level positions (department chairs and above) who aspire to senior-level positions are eligible to participate.

October 29, 2014


This 3-day leadership program is for mid-level women administrators (typically department chairs, directors, and assistant/associate deans) with high potential for advancement in higher education administration. The interactive program, typically held on campuses across the country, provides emerging women leaders with the opportunity to:

  • Hone leadership skills in critical areas such as fundraising, risk management, crisis response and strategic planning
  • Receive practical training, including curriculum vitae/résumé critiques and mock interviews
  • Reflect on career next steps
  • Gain a better understanding of the search process for senior-level positions through candid conversations with search firm executives
  • Gain a better understanding of the inherent rewards and challenges of senior-level administrative positions, including the college or university presidency, through exposure to outstanding women leaders who share their experiences and serve as role models

Limited scholarships are available. To apply, please visit: ACE and Women's Leadership Legacy Fund Scholarship.

This event, which will launch the ACE's Washington State Women's Networks, is being held in collaboration with the University of Washington and Washington State University.
