Gender Climate Group for Applicants


PreciselyTerrified

Recommended Posts

On the recommendation of a friend who went through the application process last year, I'd like to start a private, climate-for-women-applicants group on Facebook. The following are welcome: transgender women, CISgender women, women of all sexualities (and no sexuality), and anyone else who lives everyday life as a woman (whether publicly or in secret, and whether by choice or not). If you're interested, private message me your info and I'll add you on FB. Actually, I can't create the group until I have at least one other member. If you'd prefer to have the group on this site instead (or in addition), perhaps for the sake of anonymity, I encourage someone familiar with the forum tech to start a private thread. If you do, please add me! A more general LGBT+ group would surely also be useful.

 

This is meant to be a confidential, supportive space. Last year there was initially some argument over the value of having such a group. If you don't see the value in it, simply don't opt in. I am told that this was a wonderful experience last year, and it will be good to exchange our climate experiences, especially after campus visits. For my part, I am currently at Rutgers, and I'm very, very pleased with the climate in our department.

The UPDirectory publicizes information about philosophers who are members of traditionally underrepresented groups in philosophy. The purpose of the directory is to provide an easy-to-use resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the work of philosophers who belong to underrepresented groups within the discipline.

Hi everyone!

This is just to let you know that the Facebook group for women-identifying applicants will be functioning again this year, and I'm the new admin. If you would like to join, please private message me and I will add you to the group. The aim is to create a supportive space for women-identifying applicants, and it includes useful information about the climate at different departments. Please message if you would like to join! :)
