We all want to be H.E.A.R.D.: Personal Reflections

I recently dialogued with a few colleagues about the Chronicle of Higher Education Op-Ed piece, Higher

So, episode 2 was a timely conversation unpeeling the ill-discussed realities of working in higher education - the undefined ladder to leadership, the role of mentorship, and the impacts of race, gender, and a lack of representation. It was refreshing to hear the divergent paths of three unique leaders, although each sit within the S.E.M. area of Records and Academic Services.

Listening to the conversation led me reflectively down my career path and various personal experiences that span two decades.
