Catalyzing Institutional Transformation: A Workshop Based on the Oregon State ADVANCE Summer Series

April 2, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

The overarching goal of the Oregon State ADVANCE program, funded by the National Science Foundation, is to serve as a catalyst for advancing the study and practice of equity, inclusion, and justice for women and others from historically underrepresented groups in STEM who are faculty in the academy. The unique and innovative portion of the Oregon State ADVANCE program involves a 54-hour intensive immersion seminar focused on issues of difference, power, and discrimination. This workshop will include an overview of the seminar structure, content and pedagogy. We will engage in a set of activities based on Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed to explore the importance of understanding intersectionality for disrupting the normative workings of gender that maintain systems of oppression and privilege.

Presented by:

  • Becky Warner (PI), Professor of Sociology, Oregon State University
  • Susan Shaw (co-PI), Professor of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Oregon State University

Sponsored by the Underrepresentation in STEM group of the Humanities & Arts Discovery Theme Science and Technology Studies project, with co-sponsorship from OSU ADVANCE, The Women’s Place, and the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Lunch will be provided.
