Building Diversity Pipelines
Dr. Kim R. Bobby, D, E, & I Leadership Consultant, Higher Education

Registration Fee:  $5

The effectiveness of implementation of institutional policies and practices aimed at increasing representation from diverse groups in academic and research environments is often hampered by weak recruitment and retention of faculty, staff and  students from diverse backgrounds. Dr. Bobby will lead an interactive workshop targeting barriers and enablers of wider diversity pipelines in academia.

Dr. Bobby holds a doctorate in education in the area of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Washington. She has subsequently served as the Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Professor of Education at the University of Puget Sound before taking a position as the Director of Leadership Programs at the American Council on Education. There she served as the Director of the Inclusive Excellent Group, "focused on advancing women and people of color into senior leadership roles in higher education". She currently works as an Executive Search Consultant for AGB Search, LLC focusing exclusively on identifying an inclusive list of candidates for senior leadership positions at institutions of higher education.  Through her extensive experience in academic leadership, she has encountered the realities of systemic racial and gender bias, and has worked to establish policies and practices that dismantle these obstacles.
