A Workshop on Inclusion and Best Practices for Retention, Tenure and Promotion of Faculty of Color will be held for faculty Tuesday, Oct. 29.
This program is designed to facilitate a better understanding of the challenges experienced by faculty of color in academia. Nationally, less than 6 percent of tenured or tenure-track faculty are professors of color. Faculty women of color experience even greater challenges due to the intersection of race and gender.
This lunch/workshop is on will provide an opportunity for key administrators at ASU to discuss best practices to enhance inclusion, successful tenure cases, and retention, as well as learning about national demographic patterns in higher education and gaining a better understanding of the challenges faced by faculty of color.
Featured speakers are Yolanda Flores Niemann, psychology professor and Senior Vice Provost at the University of North Texas, and Carmen Gonzalez, Law Professor at Seattle University School of Law. Niemann and Gonzalez are the co-authors of Presumed Incompetent: The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia (2012).
