Lecture Summary:
Black women comprise only 3% of the total tenure track faculty at universities across the country but make incredible intellectual contributions. Notably, their accomplishments do not protect them from the consequences of racial inequities, including health morbidities. However, in the presence of adversity these scholars not only survive, but in many cases thrive. Dr. Goosby will discuss findings from her mixed methods national study leveraging data from in-depth interviews and surveys with the purpose of elevating and celebrating Black women faculty while also shedding light on the tremendous challenges they experience in their careers as faculty.
