How Department Chairs Can Be Effective Allies for Under-Represented Faculty

  Facilitator: David J. Leonard

 

While universities often provide a roadmap to diversity, they often fall short in guiding faculty and administrators on how to create a just and empowering climate.  As diversity is imagined as the goal rather than the beginning of transforming the culture of the university, the skills and knowledge needed to usher in that change remains inaccessible and illegible to many.  In this tele-workshop, David J. Leonard provides insight and advice on how to be an ally to marginalized faculty. All participants will think through various scenarios, reflecting on ways to foster both equity and diversity.
