April 6: Women’s Leadership Series Part III: Navigating Systems as an Outsider Within

The Women & Gender Collaborative in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and the Office for Equal Opportunity will sponsor the Women’s Leadership Series Part III: Navigating Systems as an Outsider Within.

The Women’s Leadership Series is a three-part series that highlights the experiences and stories of remarkable women leaders at Colorado State University to provide insights on foundations of leadership for members of our campus community. Each session will feature a panel of guests and focus on a specific theme – leadership lessons learned from attending HERS Institutes; understanding how money flows through the University; and navigating systems as an outsider within.

Women’s Leadership Series Part III: Navigating Systems as an Outsider Within: Institutions are built around systems, but for many people, those systems were not initially designed with their involvement or success in mind. This session will start with a brief introduction to systems within institutions of higher education. The program will feature women of color in executive leadership positions at CSU who will share personal stories of navigating these systems throughout their careers as outsiders within.
