Renee Sentilles, the Henry Eldridge Bourne Professor of History in the College of Arts and Sciences, will attend the Higher Education Resource Services (HERS) Leadership Institute through the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women’s registration award.
Sentilles specializes in American women’s history, gender and sexuality, childhood/youth, the American west, and 19th and 20th century U.S. cultural history.
The HERS Leadership Institute is a transformational leadership development program for women in higher education, founded to fill leadership pipelines across the United States with dynamic women, each capable of ushering their respective institutions into a more inclusive and equitable future.
Participants are asked to share their vision of leadership and what they hope to contribute to their respective institutions and are then challenged to develop the skills to actualize their professional vision. As a non-competitive space, participants also are encouraged to champion the growth of other participants. Alumnae of the HERS Leadership Institute emerge better-skilled and more confident in leading with their unique voice, providing a much-needed infusion of bold, new leadership to their respective institutions.
