This intensive workshop series is designed to equip you to develop the skills needed to translate institutional values and aspirations into tangible actions that close equity gaps in policies, practices, experiences, and outcomes among groups that have been historically excluded, marginalized, and underserved. The series will offer a highly engaging, fast-paced opportunity to learn, share, reflect and practice skills for equity-minded leadership.
All sessions will be hosted on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30 PM ET.

Any gains in equity must support the advancement of equity for others. It is not enough for HERS to help women and gender-diverse leaders secure leadership positions if they cannot then use their new influence to implement tangible actions that close equity gaps in policies, practices, experiences, and outcomes among groups that have been historically excluded, marginalized, and underserved. This program ensures that HERS alums have the skills and knowledge to transform higher education so that it is truly equitable for every employee and every student.
