Research-Based Strategies for Addressing Gender Diversity in the Higher Education Community (Invitation Only)
Time 04/23/17 01:00PM-04:00PM
Room Meeting Room 4
This will be an interactive 2-part session. In part 1 (1:00-2:15pm) we will explore findings from Phase 1 of an Internet2-NCWIT pilot study examining the state of gender diversity across Internet2 organizations and share plans for Phase 2 of that study. In part 2 (2:30-4:00pm) we will explore the concept of inclusive leadership, covering the research linking diversity and inclusion with innovation, how unconscious bias presents obstacles for women and minority students and faculty, and what research-based strategies we can use to become inclusive leaders in our institutions.
The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) is a non-profit community of more than 700 universities, companies, non-profits, and government organizations nationwide working to increase women’s participation in computing and technology innovation. NCWIT equips change leaders with resources for taking action in recruiting, retaining, and advancing women from K–12 and higher education through industry and entrepreneurial careers.
