Toward A Gender Conscious Institution: How A Dialogue About Power, Privilege, and Difference Helps Diversity
Faculty Roundtable: Focus on Diversity
Dr. Alexandra Bernasek and Dr. Caridad Souza
Please join us for lunch at 11:00 - Presentation will start at 11:30 - Register today as space is limited! This discussion looks at how gender inequality gets embedded in our institutional policies and practices in ways that inadvertently keep hierarchies of male privilege in place. It present two tools—a Power, Privilege, Difference framework and a metric called Difference/Value Dichotomy—we find helpful in examining the kind of institutional social dynamics that adversely affect women, first generation, disabled, LGBTQ and gender variant individuals, and people of color. Our goal is to initiate a dialogue about the strategies that best help uncover and address potential biases regarding social and cultural difference that marginalize non-normative groups and individuals, and prevent them from fully contributing to the core mission of an institution. The target audience is anyone interested in learning about the way institutions can become more inclusive of difference. This program is co-sponsored by the Vice President's Office for Diversity and TILT. Lunch will be provided by TILT.
