Those Who Give Us Hope: Improbable Journeys and Unexpected Opportunities

Unexpected paths and meaningful opportunities. Framed by her personal experiences, Debbie Cottrell will draw on the friendship and leadership of two astounding women in higher education: Ruth Simmons and Nell Irvin Painter. Beyond breaking barriers and bravely doing the unexpected, these women remind us of the value of taking risks, of knowing how to use our power and our gifts, and of being rooted in connectedness, joy, and purpose.
