Buster-Williams Participated in Panel Discussion

Kimberley Buster-Williams, associate provost for enrollment management, participated in a panel discussion on the topic “The Future of Women in Higher Education Leadership” at the College Board Regional Forum 2016 on Feb. 17 in Orlando, Fla.

Women interested in senior-level positions in higher education attended this highly interactive session, which addressed effective mentoring, succession planning, best practices and behaviors in the job search and interview process, mentoring and pathways to campus leadership. The workshop was led by  Witt/Kieffer Executive Search and the College Board and included exercises in identifying personal impact within current roles, visioning future impact and an opportunity to network with colleagues and regional leaders.

The session was primarily focused on women’s leadership in enrollment management. From the session description: “Women are advancing into leadership roles in enrollment management in lower numbers than men. Data from a recent survey reveals that almost 70 percent of chief enrollment officers are male, yet women appear to be well represented in the ‘middle management’ ranks of the profession.
