Spelman College CBO Dawn Alston on Leading with Humility in Times of Crisis

Dawn Alston serves as Vice President for Business and Financial Affairs and Chief Financial Officer for Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. This week on the show, Alston joins Megan Strand for a conversation on finding humility and patience in leadership through crises such as our current pandemic.

"As I have gone through this process, I feel one of the changes is that I have become more confident," she says. "There is less time for planning. At first, we had to make strategic decisions very quickly. That leaves little time for self-doubt...As time has come on, I’ve become more confident not just in myself, but in my teammates and my colleagues. It’s never a one-man show."

Join us for a conversation with Dawn Alston as she takes us through her first year as CBO at Spelman as the world changed under us all.
