Pre-conference workshops will take place on Wednesday, March 11. Programming will consist of group sessions, keynote speaker, and networking reception.
The Women’s Leadership pre-conference track will offer sessions for a diverse group working across many fields of employment at all levels. The track will explore the necessary skills to prevent and respond to sexual harassment, to develop authentic leadership through core values and beliefs, and to create boundaries at work and at home. The track aims to bring together members from the greater CASE DI community to advance women’s leadership and full potential.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
There are several important steps toward redesigning traditional engagement and fundraising models for the 21st century. They include acknowledging the unique experiences of alumni who are from marginalized and under-represented populations, understanding the adverse impact of institutionalized white privilege in higher education, and recognizing and reconciling personal biases. Advancement professionals at all levels are encouraged to participate in this track and reflect upon the diversity-related challenges in their respective institutions, with the goal of learning from experiences at peer institutions and exploring possible solutions.
