Dr. Joan Williams - "What Works for Women at Work: How to Spot Subtle Bias, and How to Eliminate It."

Date: April 23 
Time: 7:00 - 8:00 pm with book signing to follow 
Location: SUB Ballroom C
Presenter: Dr. Joan Williams

Joan Williams has played a central role in reshaping the debates over women’s advancement for the past quarter-century. Described as having “something approaching rock star status” by The New York Times, she is Hastings Foundation Chair and Director of the Center for Work-Life Law at the University of California (Hastings). Her eight books include What Works for Women at Work: Four Patterns Working Women Need to Know (2014). Media as diverse as Harvard Business Review, O Magazine, Forbes, Human Resource Executive, Jezebel, and the Yale Law Journal have covered her work. She gave the 2008 Massey Lectures at Harvard, delivered in prior years by (among others) Eudora Welty, Gore Vidal and Toni Morrison.

Joan is the Founding Director of Work-Life Law and led the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s 2007 Guidance on Caregiver Discrimination. Currently Joan’s research is focused on how work-family conflict differs at different class locations; on the “culture wars” as class conflict; on how gender differs by race; and the role of gender pressures on men in creating wok-family conflict and gender inequality. 

Joan will be staying after her keynote to sign copies of her book, "What Works for Women at Work." Learn more about the book here

Over 250 MSU Bozeman TT faculty and Department Heads participated in this second annual job satisfaction survey. We will present findings on the changes in campus climate from last year, highlight selected institutional data, as well as present snapshots of data from interviews with faculty who left MSU and from those who went through P&T this year. We encourage you to stop by anytime in that hour and a half to enjoy refreshments and engage with the data. Come meet the ADVANCE Social Science Team and learn more about the social science research methods ADVANCE employs.
