Hosted by HERS and co-facilitated by Academic Search, Inc, Next Stages, Next Steps was created to give women the tools they need to secure top-level positions in higher education. Recent research shows that women held only 30% of president roles at the nation’s colleges and universities. Next Stages, Next Steps is our response to narrow that equity gap.
Next Stages Next Steps participants will explore how to identify positions that align well with their strengths and professional aspirations as well as how to prepare materials for the senior level academic search process typically conducted by search firms. Additionally, workshop participants will learn how to navigate the search process, which includes search committee interviews and campus visits, and how to develop a network of supporters to help them succeed.
Who Should Attend
Next Stages, Next Steps invites women leaders applying to directorships, deanships, vice presidencies, provost roles, and comparable leadership positions at colleges and universities. The ideal candidate for the program has a significant amount of experience in higher education and is ready to participate in search processes typically conducted by outside search firms.
