Hosted by HERS and delivered with Academic Search, Inc, Next Stages Next Steps is designed to guide and support women seeking top-level positions in higher education. Program participants first explore how to identify positions that align well with their strengths and professional aspirations. Following this self-reflection, workshop participants learn how to navigate the senior-level academic search process, including how to assemble application materials, prepare for neutral site interviews and campus visits, and develop a network of supporters to back them, increasing their odds of success.

Who Should Attend

Next Stages Next Steps invites women leaders exploring 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.
