Lived Experiences of Women Working in Higher Ed: What Does the Research Tell Us?
Dana S. Cummings, CFRE, Vice President, Institutional Advancement, Franklin College
Why aren't there more women in leadership positions in higher ed? And what can we do about it? It turns out that many of the issues keeping women from advancing within the sector are pervasive, but fixable. During this session, Dana Cummings, doctoral student, will share current findings from her research on the topic, pulling back the curtain a bit on reasons for so few women in leadership positions within higher education, and will offer important suggestions for institutions who are interested in developing a culture where women not only survive, but thrive.
