Women Leaders Podcast, Episode 12: Ellen Heffernan

In this episode, Patti Phillips talks with Ellen Heffernan, president of Spelman Johnson, one of higher education’s top leadership search firms. If you’re in currently in a search process, or think you might be in the future, you will get so many insights from this conversation! Ellen talks about what search firms value, what women candidates need in their toolkits when they enter the search process, and the changing landscape of higher education and intercollegiate athletics. Get ready: There is so much good information coming your way!

Just a quick reminder that we recorded this before we changed our name to Women Leaders in College Sports, so you’ll still hear a few mentions of NACWAA.

Enjoy, and remember, We Are Women Leaders!
