RESOURCES ON DIVERSITY
Why do I have to "dress" down to appear like a Clark Kent to make it in academia?
After returning to the University of Copenhagen from a 3 year post doc period in the states I realized that I repeatedly, because of my gender, was expected to conform to a a stereotype.
I was also offered to be fixed.
I am trying to understand why gender is a qualification in academia and how to change that.
I found the below resources useful.
Also, I did pass on the offers to be trained to act like a white man.

DAY TO DAY WORK:
Regularly ask yourself/your team key questions such as:
-How am I supporting Black and People of Color business leaders that are in the B Corp community or other communities I’m a part of?
-How am I supporting civic engagement to hold public leaders accountable and tackle structural racism in our systems of government?
