Racial Realities and Gendered Games: Navigating Career Advancement for Women and People of Color in Academia (POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2020)

Dr. Joy Gaston Gayles

DUE TO AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION REGARDING COVID-19, THIS LECTURE HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2020. 

Dr. Joy Gaston Gayles will give this presentation as part of the Dean's Diversity Lecture on campus. Dr. Gayles is a professor of higher education and a program coordinator in the Department of Educational Leadership, Policy, and Human Development at North Carolina State University.

Black women make up less than 2% of full professors nationally. This is problematic considering the title of full professor is the highest faculty rank achievable in one's career, and many women and people of color are not represented. Further, there is little support for midcareer faculty members who want to advance their careers.

In this talk, Dr. Gayles will share her experiences that are rooted in the double bind of race and gender, as well as the lessons she's learned in the realm of career advancement toward full professor. Learn more
