GenX women in higher ed from around the globe

#Femlead Chat

The Mission of #Femlead 
We believe in the value of connecting, networking, and sharing resources and experiences.  Our mission at #femlead is to promote these values and to create an inclusive forum for open discussion of the issues confronting leaders in higher education.  #femlead is for those who lead, those with vision, those who seek to support one another in the challenges and opportunities facing us in all areas of academic life (faculty, staff, administrators).  #femlead is female-centered but you don’t have to be a woman to participate in this conversation – all civil and constructive voices are welcome!


Beginning February 28, 2012, we will can be found every other Tuesday at 2pm EST.


Find us at #femlead on Twitter.

  • Host: Joseph Fruscione (@ProfessorF74 on Twitter)
  • Topic: How Do We Preach Outside the Choir? will focus on how to talk directly with full time faculty/admins–whether in person, online, or some of each about contingent labor issues. How can we talk contingent labor and the (very broken) job market with colleagues who aren’t currently struggling with it?

  • Host: Janine Utell (@janineutell on Twitter) from Chester, Pennsylvania in the US.
  • Topic: Back to School Open Thread (find an archive of the conversation here)
  • Description:  As teaching and administrative responsibilities ramp up, we’ll think about switching gears from summer to a new semester.  What are some challenges you see in the months ahead?  What are some opportunities you hope to pursue?  Any big changes on the horizon?  Or are you just looking for ways to stay balanced, focused, and sane?  Come share tips, stories, and strategies for the new school year.
