Panel will explore ways
to promote diverse faculties
The Yale Women Faculty Forum will present a panel discussion titled “Beyond
the Body Count: Diversifying Faculties and Scholarship in Global Universities” 6:30-8
p.m. on Monday,
Feb. 18, in Rm. 109-111 of Rosenfeld Hall, corner of Temple and Grove streets.
The event will bring together senior administrators from Yale, Harvard, Columbia
and New York universities to discuss the implications of the Yale Women Faculty
Forum report “Women, Men and Yale University: A View from 2007” (available
online at www.yale.edu/wff).
Panelists will talk about how their institutions approach the challenge of promoting
diversity and equity, as well as the interventions these institutions are undertaking
in order to address it. The organizers hope that this conversation will help
generate ideas and practices that the universities’ respective administrations
can evaluate as potential policy reforms.
The featured speakers will be Judy Chevalier, deputy provost for faculty development
and the William S. Beinecke Professor of Finance and Economics, Yale; Geraldine
Downey and Jean Howard, respectively current and former vice provost for diversity
initiatives, Columbia University; Evelynn Hammonds, senior vice president for
faculty development and diversity, Harvard University; Susan Sturm, the George
M. Jaffin Professor of Law and Social Responsibility, Columbia Law School; E.
Frances White, vice provost for faculty affairs, New York University; and Hannah
Brueckner, professor of sociology, Yale.
The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
