This session is: Leadership Pathways: Honoring Every Journey

In Michelle Obama’s memoir, “Becoming,” she states, “Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child – What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.” As Mrs. Obama suggests, career paths often evolve and incorporate planned and unplanned transitions. Members of this dynamic panel will discuss their personal journeys as Black, women and/or first-generation leaders in higher education. They will share their career trajectories and offer leadership principles and practices for career advancement that all colleagues can learn from.
