Event Overview
There is a significant underrepresentation of People of Color in Higher Education information technology positions. The 2017-18 CUPA-HR Higher Education Survey reports 26% of IT staff positions, 21% of IT professional positions, 12% of IT administrator positions and 12% of CIO positions are held by minorities. As many NERCOMP institutions are wrestling with broader questions of diversity, inclusion, and equity, addressing these gaps can prove especially challenging.

This webinar will be a conversation with a panel of People of Color in Higher Education Information Services discussing their careers, experiences, and perspectives. The panel will be made up of Bohyun Kim, Aixa Pomales, and Stan Waddell, facilitated by Michael Cato. The panel will also include Michael Reed, Senior VP for Inclusion and Diversity at Bowdoin College, who will offer expertise on the wider issues and opportunities to build more inclusive organizations.
