RCR Forum: Gender Differences in Academia: Challenges and Choices along Career Paths in Higher Education

Thursday, October 19, 2017
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Dr. Rhonda Sutton, Director of College Leadership Programs, North Carolina State University

Men and women are still treated differently based on gender stereotypes, and higher education is not immune to gender bias.  Whether one is seeking a career as a faculty member or some other type of position within academia, knowing the potential challenges one can experience is important.  This presentation explores some of the possible situations women and men may encounter as well as provide information on current research findings related to the gender divide in college and university settings. Case studies will be shared so as to explore solutions and develop approaches to addressing gender discrimination. This event is cross-listed with Teaching Ideas and the Academic Job Search Series.
