The Industry, Government, or NGO Option
LK 120, Li Ka Shing Conference Center (LKSC)
In this workshop we’ll hear from DARE Alumni who decided to pursue careers in industry, government, or NGO.  Non-academic careers provide a wide range of options in a variety of workplace settings, though vastly different from one another.  This workshop, through its panelists, will explore the different opportunities available. Panelists will be asked to elaborate on what attracted to them to their respective career, what are the benefits and challenges, and strategies for those who would like to explore this choice.

Session 2 Workshops 

Impact of Your Scholarship Beyond the Ivory Tower
Berg Hall A, Li Ka Shing Conference Center (LKSC)
Consider the impact your research and scholarly work can have in the “real world,” including their applicability to underserved communities.  Examples of community-engaged scholarship will be shared and examined on how they can have an impact.  Concepts such as public intellectualism, social activism, and community-based research will be discussed and how they have been, or can be, put into practice.  This workshop will focus on how academics can make connections with local communities and to what extent academic work can be of benefit.  Challenges and opportunities to community-based scholarship will also be addressed and strategies for overcoming challenges will be shared.
Panelists: Jessica Auerbach, Rodolfo Dirzo,  Kenji Hakuta, Rebecca Hetey
Moderator: Eduardo Munoz-Munoz

Workshop: Networking and Cultivating Relationships for Academic and Professional Impact
Munzer Auditorium, Beckman Center
In this interactive workshop, participants will have an opportunity to form networks based on industry, discipline and/or institution-type.  Participants will learn easy steps they can use to build, maintain, and expand active networks and the power of networks. Participants will learn how to strategically utilize these networks, as well as how to use communication behaviors to maximize their leverage in negotiations and engage in role-playing activities and vignettes with other participants to gain hands-on experience in networking and negotiating.  The underlying theme is: How you can leverage who you are, your accomplishments, and your diversity to gain confidence and negotiate for the best outcome? 
Presenter: Vanessa George
Moderator: Sandy Manosalvas-Kjono

Leadership in Higher Education
LK 120, Li Ka Shing Conference Center (LKSC)
Just as diverse individuals are underrepresented at the faculty level, they are also underrepresented in academic administration, institutes and centers. What are the advantages to working in administration, and how can one pursue that path if it is of interest? How to explore administrative opportunities within and beyond the faculty role? At this workshop, participants who have become administrators will discuss how and why they did so, and participants will discuss the various benefits and challenges of such a career path. 
Panelists: Lupe Carrillo, Chris Gonzalez Clarke, Stacy Gleixner, Patricia J. Gumport
Moderator: Bernadine Chuck Fong 

11:45-1:15PM Lunch



Session 3 Workshops

Preparing for Tenure and Beyond 
Berg Hall A, Li Ka Shing Conference Center (LKSC)

This panel will chronicle the process it takes for academics to go through tenure at different institutions and set up a plan for what to do after tenure. Panelists will connect the dots between their research, teaching, and service, as well as working to craft a clear vision for their tenure narrative. Panelists will also detail life after tenure. How can and should academics rethink their research and teaching agendas after tenure? What possibilities are opened, e.g., for a new, long-term line of research? Does this mean never going on the job market again, or can (and should) one consider new job opportunities, including ones that do not come with tenure? Participants in this workshop will discuss these challenges and difficult questions with facilitators who have faced them in their own careers while working in groups to create a timeline for tenure preparation and additional milestones.

Panelists: Deji Akinwande, Jennifer Harford Vargas, Tomás Jiménez, Sarah Parikh, Juan Santiago
Moderator: John Boothroyd

Advancing Equity and Fostering Inclusion in an Organizational Setting Beyond the Classroom
Munzer Auditorium, Beckman Center

Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace is critical, particularly as student enrollments and employees become more diverse and bring greater diversity of thought and background to the workplace. This session will discuss strategies for (1) advocating and implementing inclusive practices, (2) recruiting and retaining diverse talent, (3) increasing buy-in from high-level officials, (4) managing the challenges that come with diversifying organizational settings, and (5) reducing bias. Systematic approaches to leadership behind the scenes including frameworks for understanding the political lay of the land, formulating strategies, and understanding influence will be shared, as well as having an opportunity to learn commonly-used tactics and techniques of the politically savvy.  Panelists from a cross-section of employers will share strategies used to increase diversity.

Panelists: Melissa Abad, Lauren Aguilar, Rania Sanford, Kathleen Wong
Moderator: Amal El-Ghazaly

Workshop: Work-life Integration: Strategies for Personal and Professional Fulfillment
Alway M112, Alway Building

Successfully integrating work, family, and self is essential to a sense of satisfaction and happiness.  Enjoying your life and your work, in that order, make for a healthy and satisfying personal and professional sense of well-being and fulfillment.  Not letting the urgent pre-empt the important comes from a deep sense of self, helps lay out a road map for your critical priorities, and allows you to remain focused on your values and priorities in daily life and work.  Moving away from the notion of finding balance, but rather disaggregating challenges and making choices that matter at different phases in life, will help clarify your sense of personal satisfaction.  Participants will walk away with a “plan of action” for how to manage self-care while engaged in a healthy personal and active professional life.

Presenter: Aneel Chima
Moderator: Lorena Castro


Session 4 Workshops

Workshop: Cultivating Opportunities for Working with Allies
Berg Hall A, Li Ka Shing Conference Center (LKSC)

Academics from diverse backgrounds interact with individuals who, while we may consider them as members of ally communities, do not consistently act as allies. Participants will discuss examples of this challenge and possible methods to responding in constructive ways. Interactive activities include role-plays, scenarios, and vignettes in which participants can learn how to model “in the moment” response strategies.

Presenter: Joseph Brown
Moderator: Marlette Jackson

Your Role as a Faculty Scholar and Leader in Academia
Munzer Auditorium, Beckman Center

Use your diverse backgrounds and perspectives to influence others through research, curricula and teachable moments. As a faculty member, you have the opportunity to work with your departmental colleagues in assuring curriculum and pedagogy are inclusive and address issues of equity, where appropriate.  This workshop will focus on your role as a faculty member and leader in the classroom and community, and identify strategies and research that faculty have used to assure that their curricula, and that of their departments, are inclusive of the perspectives and insights of those traditionally underrepresented in academia. Specific strategies and techniques for recognizing and counteracting bias will be addressed and how these techniques can be infused throughout an organization to better inform and influence colleagues in the workplace.

Panelists: Shantal Marshall, Jennifer Randall Crosby, Eric Shed, Sheri Sheppard
Moderator: Joey Nelson

Moving to Another Academic Institution
