Webinar | CIO or No? Not All IT Leadership Roads Lead to the CIO
Are you contemplating your professional development journey? Wondering whether the CIO role is the best leadership role for you? Join four seasoned higher education IT professionals who have taken different paths in their own leadership journeys. We will explore the pros (and cons) of the CIO role, explain how we shaped our own journeys to the CIO seat (or not), share our most impactful development opportunities, and discuss the role this professional community has played in our career paths.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees will:
- Understand and be able to outline a range of paths to leadership for higher education IT professionals.
- List the pros and cons of being a CIO (or not) in higher education in 2023.
- Articulate the benefits of a strong network of peers on the path of professional development.
