UAA HERS Women's Leadership Network

In the spring of 2004 the Chancellor's Cabinet approved the creation of the UAA HERS Women's Leadership Network. The UAA HERS Women's Leadership Network will:
  1. Create a supportive and engaged network of higher education women leaders at UAA;
  2. Facilitate the selection process for UAA HERS participants; and
  3. Support HERS alumnae before and after participation in HERS programming.
We are inspired by our experience at HERS and by the support we receive from each other at UAA. This is an opportunity for us to connect, share, and lead together.

Susan Kalina, HERS 2011 Alumna
Dewain Lee, HERS 2012 Alumna
Hilary Seitz, HERS 2011 Alumna
