Presumed Incompetent: A Conversation about Race, Gender, and Class in Academia
Thursday, April 25
?4:30 p.m.
Sullivan Hall, C-5?

Even though colleges and universities champion meritocracy and purport to value diversity, women of color face institutionalized bias, not just in the pursuit of tenure but also in hiring, promotion, relations with students and interactions with colleagues. Carmen Gonz?lez, professor of law, and Gabriella Guti?rrez y Muhs, associate professor of Modern Languages and Women and Gender Studies, will discuss the struggles of women of color in academia as well as the actions that faculty and academic leaders can take to promote a more inclusive campus climate. For more information, contact Rebecca Parker O?Neil in the School of Law at parkerr@seattleu.edu. To learn more about the book Presumed Incompetent, which was edited by Gonz?lez and Guti?rrez y Muhs, visit The Commons.
