Breaking the Mold: Women’s Leadership in Fundraising

Presented by Alexis Kanda-Olmstead, Dartmouth College, Director of Advancement Talent Management

Are you leadership material? The answer depends in large part on your identities. Traditional mind models about leaders and leadership skew towards masculinity and other privileged identities, resulting in barriers that hold women back. This has personal as well as organizational costs, including a surplus of incompetent leaders of all genders. In this workshop, participants will explore the unconscious biases we have towards women leaders, debunk common myths about confidence and charisma, and re-conceptualize leadership so that it works for, not against, people whose identities do not fit the traditional leadership mold. In addition, participants will learn the skills of reframing, navigating, and advocating to create change for themselves and others.
