14th Annual HIGHER Ground Women’s Leadership Conference

The VCU Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute will host its 14th Annual HIGHER Ground Women’s Leadership Conference on Friday November 6, 2020.

Women are shifting the paradigm of leadership conversations by stepping into formal and informal roles, regardless of recognition. They are challenging dominant expectations of what leadership progress and change should look like and shaking up systems of hierarchies that reinforce the status quo. Designed to create space to imagine new leadership models, The 14th Annual HIGHER Ground Women’s Leadership Conference will: interrogate why deserved recognition for women’s accomplishments is absent from prevailing leadership spaces; explore how to break free of leadership models that undervalue women; and embolden women to take the lead without needing to hold position, ask for permission, or wait for an invitation. Not Waiting to Lead will disrupt the narrative to catalyze the change that demands a future in 1st place. The Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute is a center of the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs. For more information, please visit our website: gehli.vcu.edu/conference or contact us at 804-827-1169 or [email protected]
