“Women Leaders in Higher Education: From Rights to Globalization to Shared Responsibility” was the theme of the NYS ACE Women’s Network Annual Conference held on June 13-14 at the Statler hotel, Cornell University. The program began on Thursday evening with a reception and a presentation by Amanda Bishop on “Seneca Falls and the National Women’s Hall of Fame: Celebrating Women’s Rights and Accomplishments.” Those attending were encouraged to come back on October 12th for the induction ceremony to the Women’s Hall of Fame. The 126 participants in the conference began the second day of the conference with an inspiring speech from Dr. Concetta Stewart, Provost at Mercy College, about the progression of ACEWN and the active engagement of its members. Dr. Patricia Burlaud, NYS ACEWN coordinator, introduced the NYS Regional Coordinator and Officers to the Board of Directors.
The keynote address from Kim Azzarelli, President, Women in the World, “Empowerment of Women: leading the Global Agenda” began with her opening remarks and then was interviewed by Kristen Ford about the work of this organization. “What could we accomplish if we knew we could not fail” was a question she raised to consider in supporting the struggle for gender equality around the world. After a brief networking break, the concurrent sessions were attended by the group. The concurrent sessions provided a choice of “Global Competency and Rights: A 21st Century Imperative” presented by Dr. Patricia Burlaud or “On-line Tools for Global Leadership” presented by Dr. Judith Tabron or “Cultural Influences on Leadership and Organizations” by Dr. Carol Van Der Karr.
In the afternoon, the luncheon speaker, Tara Ross, professor, Onondaga Community College, captured the minds and hearts of those in attendance with her quote “make the most of ourselves” and “have harmony, balance and responsibility of a global reach”. The Panel of Presidents included Wendi Carpenter, Rear Admiral, President of SUNY Maritime, Dr. Margaret Drugovich, President Hartwick College, Dr. Virginia Horvath, President, SUNY Fredonia and Dr. Deborah Stanley, President SUNY Oswego. Dr. Concetta Stewart moderated this session. Each spoke about their college’s global imperative as well as their personal commitment to creating a future of progress and open mindedness in global learning.
The afternoon concurrent sessions were “On-line Tools for Global Leadership” presented by Dr. Judith Tabron and two other sessions “The Power of an Effective Network” presented by Farah Jadran, Managing Director of the Syracuse Women’s Magazine and professor, SUNY Oswego and “Increasing you Professional Effectiveness in a Changing Organization”, presented by Mary Opperman, VP, Human Resources and Safety Services, Cornell University. The afternoon sessions provided practical tools for professional development.
Dr. Burlaud thanked all those who were in attendance, the conference planning committee and the speakers. Next year the annual conference will be held at the Culinary Institute of America on June 19-20, 2014. Mark it up on your calendar. We are already waiting for you there!
