Escape the Cape | FIU Women Faculty Leadership Institute 2020

Keynote Address: Escape the Cape, Carolyn West, Ph.D., an award-winning author, filmmaker, keynote speaker, and Professor of Psychology at the University of Washington.

Dr. West is an award-winning author, filmmaker, and keynote speaker. She will address the issue of academic women trying to “do it all” - or in other words, be superheroes. But what toll does this take? Dr. West will explore strategies to “Escape the Cape” of invincibility, practice self-care, and reconnect with authenticity.
