Flowing, not Forcing: Finding and Maintaining Authenticity as Black Women in Academia


Navigating the intersection of both race and gender can be difficult for Black women in academia, especially when they lack representation, and proper support, which forces many to "learn on the fly." This panel convenes Black women in diverse faculty positions to discuss pursuing and persisting in academic careers, including career path considerations, identifying and mitigating challenges, mentorship and networking, balancing expectations with authenticity, and making institution and/or career changes.
