You are cordially invited to attend:
Catalyzing Institutional Transformation: A Workshop Based on the Oregon State ADVANCE Summer Seminar
Becky Warner (PI), Professor of Sociology, Oregon State University
Susan Shaw (co-PI), Professor of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Oregon State University
The Oregon State ADVANCE program, funded by the National Science Foundation, aims to serve as a catalyst for advancing the study and practice of equity, inclusion, and justice for women and others from historically underrepresented groups in STEM who are faculty in the academy. The program involves a 54-hour intensive immersion seminar focused on issues of difference, power, and discrimination. This workshop will include an overview of the seminar and participants will engage in activities that explore the importance of understanding intersectionality for disrupting the normative workings of gender that maintain systems of oppression and privilege.
Sponsored by the underrepresentation in STEM group of the Humanities & Arts Discovery Theme Science and Technology Studies project, with co-sponsorship of Ohio State ADVANCE, The Women’s Place and Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
