Skleder represents Brenau on diversity and inclusion panel

Brenau University President Anne Skleder participated in a panel as part of the Focus Atlanta Official Virtual Launch Conference in November on the topic of Inclusive Education: Diversity and its impact on upward mobility.

Skleder was one of four Georgia college presidents to serve on the panel moderated by Belle Wheelan, president of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. More than 600 participants attended the panel discussion via Zoom.

Skleder was especially well positioned to address this topic as Brenau consistently rates high in Campus Ethnic Diversity, Social Mobility and Economic Diversity by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges. In the publication’s recent 2021 report, Brenau was top in the state and second in the region in Economic Diversity. The university also ranked No. 2 in Georgia in Social Mobility and was the top university in the state and tied for sixth overall in Campus Ethnic Diversity. Brenau also was ranked the No. 3 Best Regional University and No. 3 Best Value School in Georgia.

During the 60-minute discussion, Skleder mentioned how Brenau’s Executive Women’s MBA equips and promotes uniquely driven women currently successful in the workplace to advance to the C-suite. She also touted how the GOLD Program of The Women’s College prepares its students to become visionary leaders in their careers and how the university has successfully navigated the pandemic due to the creativity of faculty and students’ adherence to Brenau’s culture of prevention.
