Assistant Clinical Professor, Dept. Head of Graduate Studies Goodwin College Drexel University

Anne Converse Willkomm is an Assistant Clinical Professor and the Department Head of Graduate Studies at Goodwin College at Drexel University located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In her role, she also directs the MS in Professional Studies Program. The program was developed to provide students with important applied business skills, but she further developed the program to also focus on the highly desired softer skills such as communication and empathy. In the department blog, she writes weekly on topics ranging from career advice, job search, and interpersonal business, which has included posts on empathy, ethics, civility, listening skills, and the impacts of poor communication. In addition to the weekly blog, she has also presented webinars on Essentials of Good Business Communication, Art & Science of Influencing Others, and The Value and Importance of Collaborative Teams. Ms. Willkomm earned her AB in psychology at Bowdoin College and her MFA in Creative Writing at Rosemont College. Through the span of her career, she had worked in higher education and corporate America, including multinational banking. She has served on boards, capital campaigns, and various committees. Her experience has confirmed her belief that without empathy, one cannot truly succeed.
