a great chance to work on improving the climate for women and minorities in philosophy February 6, 2013

The APA Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) is establishing a Site Visit Program  designed to improve the climate for women and minorities in individual philosophy departments. The CSW is accepting applicants from philosophy faculty members who wish to be site visitors, for a one day Site Visit Training Workshop that will take place on June 1, 2013 at the University of Dayton. Here is a link to the application to participate in the Site Visit Training Workshop.

The organizers hope to create site visit teams that are diverse–so, yes, white men are welcome to apply!  As Sally Haslanger was quoted over at NewApps

Even more important, we would really like to encourage people – including WHITE MEN – to apply for the site visit training.  It is important that we have allies involved because having mixed teams will be more effective than just a group of women….who are feminists, besides!

Applications will be accepted until March 1.
