#3Wedu Podcast No.7: Job Start Up in Higher Ed

TODAY, Wednesday, July 13th at 3 pm PST//5 pm CST//6 PM EST the #3Wedu Podcasters will discuss issues around getting started and establishing yourself in a new position in higher ed. In previous #3Wedu podcast episodes, we’ve discussed issues that a number of women face as they move throughout their career, including (but not limited to): the double bind, importance of supporting one another, mentoring, the value of care work, and removing organizational barriers for women. This next podcast we thought we would take a step back and look at the issues women face when exploring and starting a new position. What are the things you should do just before and after you start a new job?

We’ll dig deeper into the topic of salary negotiations, discussing topics such as the long-term financial impact your starting salary has and how to assess the whole package (i.e. value of benefits).

The following article recently came through on the ITWOMEN EDUCAUSE LISTSERV suggesting it would be good information to share with women beginning their careers: To Seem Confident Women Have to be Seen as Warm. Their research study showed that the more competent a male engineer is, the more confident they appear, resulting in greater influence, regardless if they are seen as warm or not. For women to have influence, they must also be seen as warm. The study suggests that women must go out of their way to be seen as warm in order to be successful.

What do you think? Is the answer for women to go out of their way to be seen as warm or to affect other change? Join us tonight and share your thoughts. Here is tonight’s show notes http://bit.ly/3wedu7  and the LIVE show will be broadcasted and archived here for your viewing pleasure:


In #3Wedu Podcast No. 7 we will also be discussing how to best SPEND your money and time on professional development opportunities. We’ll share our experiences in a range of professional development programs and leadership training. The conversation will center around the value of not just the training, but networking and how to assess what training aligns best with your goals. We were thrilled to have Mary Niemiec as our special guest for our “Wine Box” rant, rave & review.
