Open Lecture on Invisible Labor
Dr. Christine Stanley will lead an open lecture and discussion about the problem of “invisible labor” experienced by faculty and staff from underrepresented populations.
Invisible labor is broadly defined as the expectation and pressure that many diverse faculty and staff feel to serve as role models, mentors, and advisors to underrepresented students, and to meet the institutional needs for diverse representation on committees, at meetings, and in departmental or office activities.
Dr. Stanley is vice president and associate provost for diversity emerita at Texas A&M University and a nationally-recognized expert on diversity in higher education. Her visit is intended to help raise awareness about this issue and to provide guidance for addressing inequities. This event is sponsored by the Office of the Provost in coordination with the Chancellor’s commissions and the Office of Diversity & Engagement.
