ACE National Women’s Leadership Forum to Provide Tools for the Next Steps for Senior Leaders

October 10, 2017



The ACE National Women's Leadership Forum is designed for senior-level women administrators (typically deans and above) seeking a presidency, vice presidency or major deanship. 

The last forum in 2017 will be held Dec. 6-8 in the Washington, DC, metro area. Space fills up quickly, so it is a good idea to apply before the Oct. 24 early bird deadline. 

The forum fosters discussions with experienced women presidents and executive search consultants; helps participants hone critical leadership skills in areas such as fundraising, risk management and crisis response; and provides a better understanding of the inherent rewards and challenges of a presidency.

Participants will gain practical feedback on key elements of the search process through videotaped mock interviews and CV/resume critiques. Attendees can also expect to share ideas and knowledge with their peers from a variety of academic backgrounds and institutional types and expand their viewpoints on issues facing higher education leaders today.

Please email with questions or for more information.
