Mara H. Wasburn
Mara H. Wasburn was Professor of Organizational Leadership and Supervision at Purdue University. She dedicated her life’s work to advancing the careers of women—locally, nationally, and internationally. Her mentoring research responded to a critical shortage of leadership and diversity in both the public and private sectors. To help meet those needs, she and a colleague developed Strategic Collaboration, an innovative team mentoring model, which they copyrighted and applied in both academic and business environments. Dr. Wasburn authored 46 publications focusing on mentoring women in technology-rich disciplines.
