IT Leadership and Beyond the CIO Role

Wednesday, October 27 | 9:15AM–10:00AM ET | 103AB, 100 Level
Viewing Location: Philadelphia
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
Higher ed CIOs often discuss how IT leadership provides exposure and knowledge of a broad scope of areas outside of IT that can lead to opportunities to take on additional duties. How can you leverage these additional duties into leadership roles with responsibilities outside of, or in addition to, IT leadership, AKA "beyond CIO?" Please join our panel of colleagues as they discuss how their careers transitioned beyond CIO, and the opportunities and challenges of the transition. Join us to learn how you can leverage your leadership skills to further your career. "CIO" doesn't need to stand for "Career Is Over" for those who are interested in broader leadership roles.
