Women and Academic Leadership Reading Group: Disrupting the Culture of Silence: Confronting Gender Inequality and Making Change in Higher Education By: Kristine De Welde and Andi Stepnick
Wednesdays, 12:00-1:00 pm, February 17, March 2, March 23, April 6, in Lib 378
Facilitators: Susan Hill and Nancy Cobb
We are continuing the conversation we began last spring on women and leadership at UNI, with a reading group on Kristine De Welde and Andi Stepnick’s collection of essays on many different topics that affect women in higher education. Book sections include “Structure Meets Culture: Work-Family Conflicts,” “Hostile Climates: Harassment and Incivility,” and “Tools for Changing the Academy.” Participants will choose the chapters each of us wants to discuss, and be responsible for facilitating that chapter. All are welcome: after all, gender inequality and making change in higher education are issues that affect everyone.
