On Thursday, March 23rd at 9:00 AM in Klingenstein Lounge, join us for a conversation about the barriers and potential solutions to how women can lead innovation in edtech.  This session will provide a forum for all participants to engage in a meaningful conversation about ways women are leading, and why it is important for their voice to be a part of the conversation and ways women’s ideas can be heard no matter where in the organization they are. The conversation will highlight the unique contributions and perspectives women’s innovations contribute to edtech and the barriers they often confront, fostering a deeper appreciation about why inclusivity is vital to education technology. The goals of the session include developing strategies for understanding the value of women leading in IT, overcoming gender barriers women may experience in higher ed and IT, supporting women in advancing in IT, enhancing the support of women in leadership roles, and empowering women, junior and senior, in IT.

The Diversity and Inclusion Discussion Circle invites members of the campus community to attend its weekly gatherings on Wednesdays at noon in Klingenstein Lounge (Please note this week we will be in Clark Lounge). One to two times a month, a guest presenter leads a discussion to take a deeper look at a topic related to diversity and inclusion.  During the Wednesday sessions where there are no presentations scheduled, we share reactions to current events and/or discuss presentations and articles that relate to the topic of diversity and inclusion.

This month our scheduled presenters, Kayla Wheeler, diversity fellow in the department of philosophy and religion; and Dr. Rumit Singh Kakar, assistant professor in the department of physical therapy, will explore how Islamophobia impacts Muslims and people who are read as Muslim, especially in a post-9/11 context. 

Please join us this Wednesday, March 8 at noon in Clark Lounge. Come with an open mind and willingness to learn.
