UAA HERS Women's Leadership Network

With the support of the Chancellor’s Cabinet, the UAA HERS Women's Leadership Network aims to create an inclusive, supportive and engaged network of higher education women leaders at UAA and to empower HERS alumnae to facilitate the selection process for summer institute participants.
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.
