Christina Dalton is the Vice President for Business and Finance at West Virginia State University in Institute, West Virginia. In this episode, Dalton joins our host Donna Schiele to talk about advocating for diversity in higher ed institution roles, particularly accounting roles, and why it’s important for students graduating to understand financial literacy.

“Being empathetic to your team members, that’s part of what makes a person successful in this role,” she says. She continues that it’s easy to be focused on your goals, but you have to be mindful that you’re not putting too much pressure on your team members. Giving people grace is an important skill to learn.
