    Leading an Equity-minded Consortium: Including and Presenting Diverse Voices

    Tuesday, September 24 at 12:00 PM Eastern

    While consortia often lead cross-institutional initiatives addressing inclusion and equity in higher education, our own organizations may not present as diverse a face to the public. Like the academy itself, lack of diversity in a consortium office may be a function of small size, hiring practices or the failure to create a truly inclusive workplace. How can higher education consortia “walk the walk” of inclusion? Three members of the ACL community will share their experiences with--and invite dialog about--creating an inclusive hiring process, creating an inclusive workplace, diversifying your program presence and leveraging partnerships to expand your consortium’s equity profile.

    Facilitated by Vicki McGillin (John N. Gardner Institute), the conversation will feature Amy Cronin (New York Six), Kiernan Mathews (The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education), and Jessica Wise (Higher Education Recruitment Consortium).

    With thanks to ACL's Webinar Sponsor:

    The 2019 Association for Collaborative Leadership Conference will be hosted by the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges in Bethlehem, PA, from October 16-18, 2019.

    The ACL pre-conference workshop will be held at the Hyatt Place in Bethlehem, PA, with the remainder of the Conference held at Moravian College, within walking distance.

    The pre-conference workshop will focus on change management, featuring a workshop taking place on Wednesday, October 16 from 12pm-4pm. Lunch will be provided between 12-1pm with the workshop beginning at 1pm. This workshop will focus on the principles of change management, overcoming challenges associated with change management, and integrating these practices into consortia work. This workshop will be followed by our annual Collaboration Showcase poster session featuring the ACL Summer Institute and any consortia who opt to participate.

    The conference schedule itself is robust with speakers from diverse consortia and member colleges and universities addressing a full range of collaborative efforts. Participants return to the ACL meeting year after year to take advantage of networking, access to information and immediately useful ideas and approaches, and for the opportunity to discuss the challenges and rewards of higher education collaboration with others who understand the work.

    A formal schedule will be forthcoming, but the topics to be explored include different aspects of communities of practice, managing external partnerships, maximizing resources through shared purchasing, managing board and leadership relationships, academic collaborative opportunities, and more.
