Event Description

Join us for the Women Advance Technology event, part of the new EDUCAUSE Leadership Series, in partnership with the University of Nebraska. This event will take place over five weeks with various opportunities to engage in online, synchronous and asynchronous sessions and collaborative learning focused on three tracks:

  • Wellness: Creating and Supporting Balanced Work
  • Allyship to Advance Women in Technology
  • What's Next: Expanding the Gender Equity Conversation

Each track features a robust set of curated resources prepared by experts in the field. Throughout, participants will meet, share with, and learn from a cohort of higher education professionals and leaders for networking and conversation with small-group deep dives.


Through active and engaged participation in the EDUCAUSE Leadership Series: Women Advance Technology, you will:

  • Reflect, synthesize, and network, while discussing key issues with experts in the field;
  • Develop relationships with others for ongoing conversation and ideation as you progress along your professional pathway; and
