Profiles, Pedigrees, and Proficiencies: Factors and Forces Influencing the Trajectories of African American Women Postsecondary Presidents will expound on the following topics:

1.      Leadership skills are transferable – the best leaders come from unlikely places
2.      No one way to the college presidency (trajectory)
3.      Race is a blessing and a curse
4.     Daddy’s girls
5.      I told you to beat ‘em by a mile – the notion of African American women having to work twice as hard can discourage some. Do not let that be a deterrent – in the end you will be over prepared.
6.      I am who I am – Be true to you (community taboos)
7.      There is a growing concern around the state of the Black male – it is equally important to encourage female students and leaders

HU ADVANCE-IT will also announce the application call for our 2015 Leadership Development: Shadow a Leader’ Award.
