Dr. Verna F. Orr shares experiences of African-American Women who are College/University Presidents.
Date: November 6, 2014
Location: Howard University, Carnegie Building, Conference Room A
Time: 1:00pm – 3:30pm
Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.238.2448.
“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.
Thank you to all those who came and to those who wanted to come, but couldn’t.
