The #3Wedu posse is hosting a happy hour podcast THIS Wednesday (4/26) at 5 pm CDT. Join us to for a chat with your cup of cheer and ideas here:

The #3Wedu Podcast

On April 5, the women of #3Wedu traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana to facilitate roundtable discussions on ways to re-define education to support women in innovative contexts. If you haven’t heard about this, check out our last blog post about the #3Wedu Conversation at #OLCinnovate:

News, blogs, and panels are filled with horror stories from Silicon Valley, reflecting pay gaps, gender bias, and more. In our roundtable, we first asked, “what does it mean to be a woman in innovative education environments?” Next, we thought about how we might re-imagine the organizational structures of universities to be more supportive of women. Read and contribute to the #OLCinnovate discussion here: http://bit.ly/3weduinnovate17 

In the next episode of the #3Wedu podcast No. 16, we’ll reflect on the roundtable conversations further, to share who we met, what we heard, and ways we might move the conversation forward into action. Join us…

The #3Wedu Podcast, No. 14: Gender Matters

As our institutions welcome new faculty and onboard staff members, higher learning organizations often experience either (or both) salary compression and salary inversion. Why raise the salary of tenured professors or administrative staff, if this talent can be replaced by recruiting new professionals or faculty for substantially less? Or just focus on one or two impact hires that bargain a salary much higher than their counterparts already on campus?  In previous #3Wedu podcasts (listen to episode no. 6 and no. 7), we have certainly discussed the glass ceiling for women in the workforce. Although these #3Wedu chats dig into the issues and opportunities for advancement in higher education; we have not even touched what it means for women who want to pursue senior leadership roles at the administrative level?

One of the most measured issues of inconsistency is the salary and pay gap between women and men. In administrative roles at our colleges and universities, women have only moved from $0.77 to $.80 on the dollar between 2001 to 2016, when compared to their male counterparts. But with this fact being shared, there are even more concerns about the gender gap those who hold faculty rank in a department or across a discipline AND the pathways/pipelines women have to administrative leadership in higher ed.

To dig into this issue further, I’m looking forward to welcoming  Ann Marie Klotz and Rich Whitney to share a bit around their narrative research inquiry for the impacts gender has in our university settings, specifically with regards to presidential leadership. [To Read: Ann Marie’s doctoral research will give you further insight on this topic as well]. Does gender matter for leadership in higher education? How do women presidents impact university leadership? What is their experience like? We will dig into these findings, specifically with a recent manuscript publication they completed, from their abstract:

“In spite of the increased enrollment numbers for women students, and that the demographic is enrolling and graduating at faster rates than their male counterparts, there are very few women in the highest level of leadership within a university. Several reasons for this phenomena include historical inequalities, stereotypical notions about women’s leadership styles, the presence of a chilly climate on college campuses, and the male-dominated history of academia. All of these impact the speed of advancement and professional options for women. This is a narrative inquiry study is part of a larger study that examines the role of gender and meaning-making for women in leadership within higher education, specifically at the level of the university presidency.

Join us TODAY (2/22) to discuss the impact and influence of gender on campus. Of course, we will always have dedicated time check-in with the #3Wedu ladies, who have been busy leading in research and conference happenings since January.

Wine Forward with #3Wedu

This past weekend brought a number of women from around the world together for the Women’s March on Washington. I was inspired by local movements, shared messages, and photos curated from this global event. That being said, I hope that this is just the start of how we move forward in 2017. In the world of work, we know there is still much to do, such as, narrow the gender pay gap, place women into leadership/CEO positions in our organization, and change the perspective/reality of men who are disinterested in “jobs typically done by women.”

In order to “wine forward,” we should look in both directions. On the past #3Wedu episode, We reflected on 2016 and discussed our goals for a healthy 2017. Now it’s time to take action and wine/move forward with purpose!

#WINEvent and Corking 2016 with #3Wedu

This month, I have been dropping knowledge about savory red wines with Fiachra as we dive into our self-stocked Wine (Ad)vent calendar (this one was sold out). Each day leading up to December 25th, our household is celebrating the end of 2016 by unwrapping a bottle of vino for #WINEvent. Each wine was selected with a particular story in mind, and we share this tale and our thoughts the wine selection with each other (and sometimes friends who drop in). Want to learn more about the bottles sampled? Check out our 2016 #WINEvent Flickr album or listen to our daily stories/wine reviews via SoundCloud. It’s our way to send off and put a cork in 2016, as we’re sort of done with this year.

The #3Wedu Podcast No. 11: Women Advancing the Future of IT in Higher Ed

Every individual has a responsibility in an organization to enhance the understanding of the value of women leading, create structures to help women overcome gender barriers they may experience, and identify strategies to support women’s progress along their leadership path. Women bring heterogeneity that can benefit the workplace. To avoid groupthink and bring more diversity to our organizations, we need to consider putting more women into leadership roles to improve performance and productivity. Each of our higher education institutions has an organization culture that can empower or limit women’s ability to lead at various levels. These cultures consist of assumptions and values (see Schein’s model of organizational culture) that are sometimes decades old. Many times organizational structures have been developed by men and their actions potentially inhibiting women leading in various ways.

The #3Wedu Podcast: Episode No. 10: Express Yourself!

My father always said, “it’s what’s in your head and not on your head.” This expression was often used as he saw myself or my siblings getting ready for school, and, perhaps, spending a ridiculous amount of getting ready to go out the door. Although, I know this statement to be true — I can’t help but think how much the external self really does impact how we are perceived in the world of work.  There is no shortage of “how to dress for work & success” advice columns, personal blog posts, or media articles. We often get suggestions or passing comments on our wardrobe from our peers, whether we like it or not. And despite credentials, intelligence, or knowledge, our image is the first impression we provide to our campus stakeholders and colleagues. Fashion and how women dress in higher education will continue to be a topic of frustration, debate, and conversation. So let’s talk about it, #3Wedu

This Wednesday, October 19th join us for The #3Wedu Podcast, as we talk about putting our fashionista selves forward during the “Express Yourself!” episode #10. From past podcasts, we have shared about how our outward self really does impact our work in education. We know that what we wear and how we dress sends messages to our colleagues, students, and peers. Our appearance and dress offers insights to our personality and often impacts first impressions.

3wedu_no_10To step up our a-game for the battle of the dress, this week’s #3Wedu banter will be about putting our best foot forward (literally and figuratively) as we consider strategies to “dress to impress” on campus, in the boardroom, and for conference travel.

Here are just a few real and relevant questions, I’ve overheard from our #3Wedu conversations:

  • What do you think your personal image says about you?
  • What influences your own style when you’re shopping for new duds?
  • How can you update your own wardrobe on a budget?
  • Where do you go for no hassle clothing options? Stores and online?
  • What do Converse kicks pair best with for business casual?
  • What is your “go to” clothing item or accessory you often bring when you travel to a conference or academic meeting?

The #3Wedu Podcast No. 9: Elevate and Amplify

 

Do you ever think about how to best amplify one another in higher education? Jess Knott shared about this in her #3Wedu podcast blog post that included this article about amplification tactics, which left her staff thinking more critically about the voices heard around the table. Are we guilty sweeping comments from ladies aside in meetings? How do we amplify messages of our female peers in higher ed? How do you elevate other women in the field? Let’s share this message loud and proud. It’s time to turn the conversation about amplifying women in higher ed up to 11.
