You are invited to sign-up for the spring 2014 cohort of
And Still We Rise
, a discussion series to be held for six weeks over dinners at the University of San Francisco. The focus begins from the stories of women faculty and women
within an often-contradictory culture of academia. The series uses the landmark edited volume
Presumed Incompetent: The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia
as the basis and guide for meaningful dialogue and discussion for change. We hope that through the methodology and process of this discussion series, participants will have an opportunity to gather together for a person-centered and self-affirming dialogue.
This is a free discussion series, a light dinner will be served at each session. Space is limited to 18 participants, and adjunct faculty women are also encouraged to apply. Attendees will receive a copy of the book
