The next event in the 2020-2021 Teachers College Dean's Lecture Series takes place on Thursday, April 15, from 4-5 p.m. with Dr. Michelle Glowacki-Dudka’s presentation: "Not Imposters: How Women Leaders Stay Whole in a Culture of Backlash, Patriarchy, and Oppression.”
Through a critical feminist inquiry, Dr. Michelle Glowacki-Dudka examined 14 mid-career women leaders and how they have developed leadership qualities that support agency, empowerment, self-esteem, and self-worth that provides courage and perseverance in a variety of challenging situations. She explored three aspects of their identity where imposter syndrome or backlash could be identified: 1) work: level of professional or personal; 2) home: gender roles and relationships; 3) school or education. Join us as Dr. Glowacki-Dudka reviews her findings, including a follow-up as to how their understanding of their roles shifted with COVID-19.
