Finding your people

Mar 23 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

I have been thinking a lot about how to deal with some...uninformed attitudes in my new dept. Thanks to everyone who joined in the conversation! As you can all see, from my recent victory, I have decided that I can't just shut up and wait for tenure. But I really do want to get tenure, which will require not pissing off all the senior faculty. So I really appreciate all the great advice on how to be "that woman" without being too aggressive. You guys rock! But if you want some real expert views on how to deal with -isms in the workplace, you have to go check out what Dawn has to say at Rooting Nonprofits. There is some real, expert advice in the two posts over there, including awesome, actionable tips on how to find allies and start getting the situation changed. If you haven't seen it yet, you should definitely check it out.

    That's what I decided too -- both for the useful perspectives I have on some things and for the advice I need so as to make it to tenure.
