Nieuwspoort, The Hague

 

 

The Dutch Network of Women Professors is happy to invite you to attend the presentation of the Women Professor Monitor 2019 on December 12 in Nieuwspoort, The Hague. You will be one of the first to learn about the contents of the new monitor and the latest news concerning the current ratio of men to women in academia.

 

'Do faculty diversity programs work?'

Harvard University professor Frank Dobbin will provide us with much needed answers during his - not to be missed - keynote speech. We are delighted and proud to have him!

Frank Dobbin is Henry Ford II Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard. His Inventing Equal Opportunity, winner of the American Sociological Association’s Distinguished Book Award, charts how corporations have responded to anti-discrimination law since the 1960s. With Alexandra Kalev, he is developing an evidence-based approach to diversity management, using administrative data and panel surveys to explore how hiring, promotion, diversity, work-life and harassment programs have shaped both the corporate and faculty workforces over 25 years.

Feel free to bring a colleague and point this event out to others who you think might be interested.
