Building and Sustaining Key Relationships: A Conversation with Executive Women Leaders

Last updated January 2, 2024

A President and CFO reflect on what made their partnership successful and sustaining.

Overview

As you navigate more complex leadership roles, you will also navigate more contentious issues and conflicts. This makes the relationships you form with your colleagues not only “nice to have,” but essential: there is very little that cannot be accomplished when relationships are strong and built on a foundation of trust and mutual respect. 

During this discussion, you’ll learn how a President and a CFO built a relationship that propelled the success of their teams, the institution, and helped them both to thrive individually. Carmen Twillie Ambar, President of Oberlin College, and Audra Hoffman Kahr, Executive Vice President of Finance & Administration at Lafayette College, will share how they met, how their relationship evolved, and a few lessons they’ve learned along the way as women leaders in higher education. 

Who should attend?

Current and aspiring women leaders will find this discussion most beneficial.
