Advancing Women in Leadership Conference

2018 Advancing Women in Leadership Theme: Purpose




The conference is designed for women of all ages, stages of life, and professional development. Men are also highly encouraged to attend and learn about leadership trends, research models, issues, and opportunities addressing gender balance in leadership structures. Faculty, staff, and students (undergraduate and graduate) who aspire to higher levels of influence and professional development are the key audience for the conference.


Participants will learn from top female leaders in the field of higher education and receive encouragement, direction, support and education related to advancing careers, personal influence, professionalism, vocational discernment, and leadership gravitas. Further, attendees have the opportunity to network with CCCU colleagues.


According to a 2016 report[1], women are entering institutions of higher education at a higher rate than men, with women also earning more than 50% of all bachelor’s master’s degrees, and doctoral degrees. Yet, even with these increasing figures, the faculty and senior administration of many colleges and universities fall short of a healthy gender balance representation. The Advancing Women in Leadership conference will address these challenges and opportunities.
