This interactive workshop encourages and equips men to serve as effective allies for gender equity in STEM settings. To begin, we highlight data on the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women as well as the importance of institutional climate. Next, we overview recent literature that helps explain why and how gender inequity occurs. Lastly, we introduce and develop concepts, vocabulary, actions, and practical skills to promote gender equity. The workshop is structured as an interactive conversation with opportunities to learn, ask questions, and practice skills through scenario-based exercises.
This workshop will be led by Dr. Roger Green (Electrical and Computer Engineering, North Dakota State University) and Dr. Robert Gordon (Psychology, Auburn University), who have conducted Ally Workshops at universities throughout the country since 2009
Please note that registration for this pre-conference workshop is restricted to men. The similar “Gender and Higher Education: Exploring Women’s Experiences” session is available for women.
