Addressing divergence in the course of history between progress and barbarism, acceptance and denial, the future and the past, knowledge and information, every institution is at risk to falling behind in the consortium of competition pressuring global societies. Le Grange (2020) discusses the emergence of global knowledge economy societies with the adoption of neoliberal policies in universities. Leadership must tread the will of populism and with the reality of skepticism in planning our steering of priorities. One challenge which remains from the past century and has crept steadily in this one is the need to honor efforts in establishing opportunities for women in positions of power in higher learning institutions. Black women, a historically marginalized group, require action to support their efforts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Ignoring this deed requiring immediate attention is ignorance. Ramohai (2019) discusses problems of access for black women in higher education. Ayford and Zaaiman (2021) discuss how ignoring the challenges of race contribute to the continuation of racism in higher education.
