Leaders in Enrollment Advancing Diversity (LEAD)

2022 Women's Leadership Institute

December 6-9, 2022 | JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa | Palm Desert, CA

Gain a practical understanding of what it takes to be a leader on a college or university campus—both the challenges and the rewards. Don't miss this opportunity to examine the unique roles, skills, and relationships needed to lead as higher education faces and deals with the most challenging period in 50 years.

Through presentations, small-group exercises, and discussion, this unique program brings together administrators from across campus functions to help attendees:

  • Connect with other women leaders from across campus to bring  to light common challenges and help build a supportive network through which to share future solutions.
  • Leave the institute refreshed and motivated to apply the knowledge they’ve learned and to help others on campus become better leaders.
  • Step beyond their functional area to focus on career advancement and self-improvement.
  • Learn from dynamic and accomplished speakers through sessions and candid conversations.
