International Women's Day: One President’s Perspective

March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day to highlight the contributions of women and to advocate for greater parity. Dr. Jann Rudd Weitzel, president of Cottey College, shares that she has a quote, adapted from a quote by Hunter S. Thompson, hanging on the wall of the President’s House that keeps her focused:

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, latte in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "Wow! What a Ride!”

As an executive search firm, we believe that we can serve our clients best by introducing them to qualified candidates regardless of gender. Hyatt-Fennell Executive Search is proud to be a woman-owned business. On International Women’s Day, we applaud all of the women serving in higher education and look forward to the numbers growing.
