Event description

Description

The focus of the IOWAWHE annual leadership conference is “Lifting as We Climb.”

Plan to attend the annual IOWAWHE conference April 4th and 5th, 2019 at Iowa State University, Reiman Gardens https://www.reimangardens.com/.

Academic leadership is not for the faint-hearted, and certainly not if you are also a woman and an academic leader or a prospective academic leader. Are you or were you an “up and comer” in your career or institution? Did someone else notice you or were you the one noticing and lifting other women? Women leaders in academia often face multiple barriers, whether it is oneself, others, or the demographics that contribute to our individual profiles. There are multiple complexities that may obstruct ones’ professional climb, yet how are we to negotiate them?

In the spirit of ACE’s commitment to Moving the Needle and increasing the number of women in academic leadership positions, the IOWAWHE has chosen “Lifting as We Climb” as the 2019 theme. This theme will embrace the mountain of leadership complexities that women encounter during their climb in academia. You will gain an understanding of the paths and obstacles women leaders in academia have experienced in order to embrace opportunities when they present themselves or to foster opportunities for others when in positions to do so; and you will leave the conference with the wisdom that ‘we are all in this together.’

A pre-conference workshop on Negotiation will take place on Thursday, April 4, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the Garden Room, Reiman Gardens on the campus of Iowa State University. A reception and hors d’oeuvres will follow from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Conference registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8:00 am on April 5 and the conference will begin at 8:45 in the Garden Room, Reiman Gardens.
