Description

37th Annual OWHE Conference
Thursday, January 26 and Friday, January 27, 2017
Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, OR
Theme: Embrace Change: Perseverance, Growth, and Transformation

Please join us for the 37th annual OWHE Conference this year in Sunriver, Oregon. The conference is an opportunity to connect with other women in higher education, build a network, learn best practices, and gain professional development.


There will be 4 pre-conference sessions on Thursday, Jan. 26th 2 - 5 PM:

1. Transforming Search and Selection in Higher Education -- CANCELLED

2. Unconscious Bias


This workshop will provide an overview of the concept of unconscious bias and related research, with a focus on strategies for recognizing and addressing our own biases, managing biases we experience in and out of the workplace, and conclude with strategies for recognizing and addressing structural biases in our organizations. As women, it is important to share our stories and lived experiences in order to positively influence and strengthen the next generation of women leaders. As individuals with multiple intersecting and marginalized identities, we must continue to grow and enhance our skills to better advocate for others and ourselves when unconscious biases, amongst other things, are present in our everyday experiences. While many higher education professionals may be familiar with unconscious bias as an academic concept, most of us would benefit from deeper reflection of our own biases and experiences as targets of biased behavior. This workshop will empower participants with skills and tools to be resilient in the workplace and to be agents of change on the individual, group, and organizational level.

3. Building a Model for Professional Development and Mentoring the Next Generation of Women in Higher Education

Building on experience with a campus digital fluency initiative, a sustainable professional development model had been developed that is transferable to mentoring the next generation of women leaders in higher education. This model is easily replicated and can transform the work we do on our campuses to provide networks and opportunities for women with leadership potential. This workshop is aligned with the theme of embracing change and transforming the cadre of women coming into their most productive years as leaders and change agents. There will be lots of room for conversations and shared experiences with a strong model to be shared and deep work around pedagogy, technology and leadership.
