    Women academics face challenging circumstances in their professional lives. Relative to their male colleagues, they can expect longer review times (Hengel, 2016), less credit for their research contributions when working in a team (Sarsons, 2017), biased evaluations of their teaching from students (Mengel, et al., 2017, Boring, et al., 2016), and cultures that are more likely to frame men through a professional lens and women through personal and physical lenses (Wu, 2017; Wolfers, 2017; Rivera, 2017). In the face of this rough terrain, we can lose sight of the institutionalized barriers to success as a women academic and personalize negative experiences. Through this PDW, we offer a three-pronged approach to helping women academics and allies broaden their sight to develop and grow a feeling of community, support, and self-efficacy. This approach has proven effective in overcoming barriers that prevent clear understanding of bias in business schools: barriers of isolation, ignorance, shame, and silence. This PDW builds off the success of the past two years of "Nevertheless she persisted" PDWs to bring focus on how we may broaden our sights to better meet the needs of women in the Academy. 

    The PDW has three parts. The first part, Stories of Persistence is open to all. The second and third part, Tools of Persistence and the Reciprocity Ring exercise, are limited to 120 participants and will be filled on a first come basis. If you'd like to participate in the Tools of Persistence break-outs, please register at the below link. 

    Part 1 (10 am - 11:30 pm): Stories of persistence: Six accomplished women academics share stories about a challenge they faced in their career and how they persisted through it.. 

    Part 2 (11:30 - 12:30 pm):  Tools of persistence: In facilitated break-out groups, we will discuss solutions to particular challenges for women academics. When you register, you will be queried regarding your topic preferences. If you wish to attend this part, please register at this link – And Yet She Persisted Registration. You will be asked to identify your preferred break-out group focus.

    Part 3 (12:30 - 1:00 pm): Reciprocity Ring to request and share resources and support.
