We’ve discussed women’s struggles with advancement in STEM fields on this blog. Issues of inequity are by no means limited to STEM disciplines. This is why publications like Women in Higher Education are so vital.
Women in Higher Education is a publication dedicated to providing support, opportunities, and community to women educators. Their website provides resources for finding jobs in higher education. It also hosts articles written by, for, and about women in higher education. They also publish a monthly magazine with articles, profiles on successful and influential women, and news about equity in education.
The WIHE newsletter and website host a wide variety of articles written by, for, and about women educators. The newsletter also includes a Newswatch section covering important news stories and events that affect women in academia. The articles published by WIHE are very informative and speak to the unique experiences of marginalized people in the education space. One recent article, Catalyzing Real-World Change by Lois Elfman, explores the career of educator, author and coach Dr. Vanessa Carlisle, and her work to support students with marginalized backgrounds as they find their way in academia. WIHE is a great resource for learning about and connecting with women in education. Their work is very valuable and worth checking out.
