The #3Wedu Podcast No. 11: Women Advancing the Future of IT in Higher Ed

Every individual has a responsibility in an organization to enhance the understanding of the value of women leading, create structures to help women overcome gender barriers they may experience, and identify strategies to support women’s progress along their leadership path. Women bring heterogeneity that can benefit the workplace. To avoid groupthink and bring more diversity to our organizations, we need to consider putting more women into leadership roles to improve performance and productivity. Each of our higher education institutions has an organization culture that can empower or limit women’s ability to lead at various levels. These cultures consist of assumptions and values (see Schein’s model of organizational culture) that are sometimes decades old. Many times organizational structures have been developed by men and their actions potentially inhibiting women leading in various ways.

The #3Wedu: Women Who Wine in Education will be trying a new format and location as we join host our podcast and keynote panel today (November 7th) from 3:25-4:55 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln IT Leadership Conference. In an effort to share our panel discussion we hope to stream this session via YouTube LIVE and, of course, we will do our best to keep the Twitter backchannel banter going here: #3wedu.

Tune in LIVE between 3:25-4:55 pm CT as we will stream our keynote panel TODAY, November 7, 2016 here:

Through changing our behaviors, activities, communication, and environments, we can potentially alter the culture with these micro level modifications. Implementing practices to facilitate the growth of women leaders while creating an embracing culture that is pertinent for leadership development. Let’s talk about it. This isn’t a women’s issue; this is everyone’s issue.

The #3Wedu Podcast No. 8: Happy #HigherEd New Year!

Today is the last day of August. With this and labor day weekend just ahead, it really feels like the end of summer. Now it’s back to school time! I would say summer flew by — but really, that would be a lie. I think I made the most of the summer to work on research projects, write a manuscript or two with the fantastic #AcWriSummer group, teach a couple of classes online, visualize publications, and stoke the fire for grant & research ahead! Of course, I took a break to enjoy lake life, hiking, and road trips (See #GirlsGoneEast on Instagram).

In higher education, I have always viewed each semester as a “fresh start” in our academic cycle. With the fall semester here, this term, in particular, brings about new beginnings for many students, staff, and faculty on campus. In the first week of our academic semester, I enjoy reading about my students’ hopes, dreams, and aspirations they share on my student information forms. It often makes me sit back and think about what I want to get out of the course or work ahead in the term as well.

The #3Wedu Podcast No.7: Job Start Up in Higher Ed

TODAY, Wednesday, July 13th at 3 pm PST//5 pm CST//6 PM EST the #3Wedu Podcasters will discuss issues around getting started and establishing yourself in a new position in higher ed. In previous #3Wedu podcast episodes, we’ve discussed issues that a number of women face as they move throughout their career, including (but not limited to): the double bind, importance of supporting one another, mentoring, the value of care work, and removing organizational barriers for women. This next podcast we dig into the following questions, not in any particular order:

  • What are the things you should do just before and after you start a new job? This may include salary negotiations, benefits, culture and fit.
  • How should you plan your professional development funding? Suggestions and ideas for opportunities for learning and growth in your career.
  • Do you agree with this study or think we have to be “warm” to advance in your career?: To Seem Confident Women Have to be Seen as Warm 
  • We were thrilled to have Mary Niemiec as our special guest for our “Wine Box” rant, rave & review.

The #3Wedu Podcast No. 6: Gender Equity Issues

There are differences women encounter in the world of work. Women face a pay gap in nearly every occupation.”The pay gap has barely budged in a decade. At the current rate, the gap won’t close for more than 100 years” (Hill, 2016). Not only are financial opportunities unequal, so are additional expectations related to roles, presence, appearance and more. How we are valued and compensated are issues we need to address within higher education, and related funding areas (e.g. consulting, grants, etc). Let’s do something about this AAUW 2014 statistic!

This Wednesday (6/18) the #3Wedu Podcast we bring up issues and areas faced with gender equity. In particular, equity with physical appearance (e.g. dress, standards, and expectations) and finances (e.g. salary, consulting, and funding opportunities).  We’re looking forward to welcoming our Boxed Wine Rant guest(s): Cali Morrison (@calimorrison) and Megan Raymond (@meraymond) from WCET to share about an upcoming #3Wedu Panel/Mixer event coming to you this fall. Please tune in LIVE for the broadcast tomorrow 3 pm PST // 5 pm CDT // 6pm EST:

Here is the direct Google+ Hangout ON AIR Event page for the live event where you can post comments or ask questions. Per usual, we also offer an open our Google Doc for show notes http://bit.ly/3Wedu6 and to share relevant articles and resources from the show.

What’s the #3Wedu Podcast all about ? Well, the #3Wedu hosts with the most [Nori (@nononi28), Jess (@jlknott), Patrice (@Profpatrice), Tanya (@tjoosten), & moi (@laurapasquini)] talk about issues, ideas, challenges, and more for women in higher education. Here’s why we started the #3Wedu podcast this year:

  • to understand the value of women leading innovation in learning
  • to overcome gender barriers women may experience in higher ed
  • to support women doing amazing things from the field
  • to provide better recognition and platform for said things
  • to highlight women in leadership roles through mentoring and coaching
  • to empower women junior and senior in education
  • do all of the above while enjoying a fine glass of wine with a few delightful ladies

Join us for #3Wedu podcast #3 on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at 5 pm CST as we talk about [Great] Expectations of Women in Higher Ed.  

What expectations do you have of yourself or women in higher ed? This coming week’s wine edition of #3Wedu we shall dive into the expectations, judgements, image concerns, impressions, and then some for women in higher ed. Do you have something to say about how women in higher education dress, are concerned about the comments on faculty evaluations, or seem to be put through “America’s Got Talent-like” judgement during a campus interview? Well uncork that wine bottle, grab your goblet, and join the gab!

Send a Google+ Event Reminder to your Calendar, and be sure to follow the #3Wedu backchannel on Twitter. Cheers!
