Representation


Under the leadership of President and CEO Lisa Wardell, Adtalem has notably increased female and multicultural representation on its Board of Directors since 2016. We believe diverse and independent Directors create stronger practices and outcomes for the company. 

Lisa Wardell is an advocate for increasing the number of women and minorities in corporate leadership positions, and in 2018 became a signatory with CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.
