Welcome to our new “home” on the interwebs: https://3wedu.wordpress.com/ This is where the #3Wedu Podcast will archive podcasts, events, and other resources here from our monthly discussions.
What’s the #3Wedu Podcast all about? The podcast was created to offer a space to share more about women who lead, innovate, research, and more in higher education as we sip on wine. We want to support women doing amazing things from the field and offer a space to give recognition, ask questions, and reduce the barriers many women have in higher ed. We hope the #3Wedu podcast will start the conversation and push others to mentor, coach, and empower ladies in higher ed. Meet the #3Wedu podcasting team!
There are differences women encounter in the world of work. Women face a pay gap in nearly every occupation.”The pay gap has barely budged in a decade. At the current rate, the gap won’t close for more than 100 years” (Hill, 2016). Not only are financial opportunities unequal, so are the expectations for dress and appearance. How we are viewed and compensated are issues we need to and CAN address in higher education.
This Wednesday (6/18) the #3Wedu Podcast we bring up issues and areas faced with gender equity. In particular, equity with physical appearance (e.g. dress, standards, and expectations) and finances (e.g. salary, consulting, and funding opportunities). We’re looking forward to welcoming our Boxed Wine Rant guest(s): Cali Morrison (@calimorrison) and Megan Raymond (@meraymond) from WCET to share about an upcoming #3Wedu Panel/Mixer event coming to you this fall. Please tune in LIVE for the broadcast tomorrow 3 pm PST // 5 pm CDT // 6pm EST:
Here is the direct Google+ Hangout ON AIR Event page for the live event where you can post comments or ask questions. Per usual, we also offer an open our Google Doc for show notes http://bit.ly/3Wedu6 and to share relevant articles and resources from the show.
