Thursday October 8, 2015

139 Vivian St, Wellington, New Zealand

Convened by: Peggy Deamer (Yale University) and Joanna Merwood-Salisbury (Victoria University of Wellington)
Moderators: Justine Clark, Sarah Treadwell, and Dorita Hannah

To change the design profession we need to change what and how we teach; we need to present new models of success; and we need to change expectations. We invite you to join us at an international symposium bringing together academics, practitioners and students who, each in their own institutional context, struggle for fair exposure, opportunity and support in our discipline.

The symposium is structured around three thematic sessions, each with a series of short presentations and a summarizing workshop.

Session 1: representation – 10.00am-12.00pm
This session asks how women are represented in academia; how models of female “success” are (or are not) represented for/to both faculty and students, and what can be done to address this.

Session 2: gender and family politics – 1.00pm-3.00pm
This session covers how academia prepares us for healthy, fulfilling careers with work/life balance, cooperation, and gender equity.

Session 3: curriculum - 3:30pm-5:30pm
This session considers academic courses that in their subject matter or form of delivery address and rectify the invisibility or implicit dis-empowerment of women.
