The Fall 2019 Equity Speakers Series event explores how women’s labor plays a central role in making academia a more inclusive space. It features a conversation with Dr. Rebeccca Mark, Director of the Center for Academic Equity in Newcomb-Tulane College, Chair of Tulane’s English Department, and Associate Dean in Newcomb Tulane College and Carolyn Barber-Pierre, the Assistant Vice President for Multicultural Life and head of the Carolyn Barber-Pierre Center for Intercultural Life. The conversation will take up themes of identity as a resource for success, student activism, and chart the punctuated equilibrium of growth towards inclusivity with the academy. This entry in the Equity Speaker Series will be moderated by Dr. Michael Cunningham.
