Empowering Women in Higher Education: Nurturing Well-Being for Success

Women in higher education serving as presidents, department heads, faculty, directors, supervisors, and staff often contend with responsibilities that extend beyond regular work hours. These extensive responsibilities often require these women to commit to working 12 hours or more, including weekends. Their job duties often encompass a wide range of critical areas, including campus safety, enrollment management, strategic financial planning, crisis management, accreditation processes, student affairs, athletic programs, alumni relations, academic excellence, safeguarding academic freedom, and fostering community engagement. Despite the formidable challenges associated with their role, these women often find the job equally rewarding due to the remarkable achievements of students, the generous philanthropic support from donors, and the prestigious national and international recognition bestowed upon the university, faculty, and staff. One must often wonder how these women create and maintain a healthy work-life balance. What strategies do they use to achieve a balance between their personal lives and commitments to their institution? How do they nurture their well-being to achieve success?

Our Speaker is: Julia Reed, Clinical Social Worker. Connection builder. Innovator. Servant Leader.
