Women in Academic Leadership: Learning from each other

Celebrating women in academic leadership

Some of us respond to a tap on the shoulder, and others plan and learn explicitly to become leaders at some point in their careers. Sometimes it is difficult to see where your choices are leading, although (as a committed narrativist) I know it is illuminating to understand your choices backwards – “oh, yes, this led to this, and then that led to that…and so now here I am.”  Part of this journey depends on opportunity and timing, but I think more depends on curiosity, openness to change, and acceptance of personal agency. This is where I find myself now.
