The American Council on Education Women’s Network- Ohio (ACE WNO) invites you to submit a proposal for its 24th annual conference.
Our theme this year is, “Together We Can”. Attendees will learn how to lean into our networks for sources of strength, perseverance, and support while navigating a changed higher education landscape. Along the way, we’ll gain insight and develop skills in mentoring, coaching, and sponsoring each other and ourselves.
Conference session proposals should focus on one of three themes:
Creating and sustaining systems of support (as mentors, coaches, and sponsors) for women leaders across academe
Finding personal and professional strategies for navigation and perseverance in leadership
Respecting the intersectionality of our identities as women and diverse leaders
Conference sessions are intended to create opportunities for deep discussion and skill-building related to developing women, and to inform attendees on current higher education issues and trends. Practice-based proposals are especially encouraged.
Concurrent Session Proposal Requirements and Submission Information: All proposals must be submitted by Friday, July 8, 2022, via this ONLINE PROPOSAL FORM. Late and/or incomplete submissions will not be considered.
