§1 Crucial Voices: The Importance of Representation in Public Institutional Leadership

On Friday, February 10th, this happened:

The Interdisciplinary and Critical Studies Department in the Faculty of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Windsor is taking on the question of Exclusion from Public Institutional Leadership in a public panel discussion. We are going to talk through how our leaders can look so different from us in a democracy. What are the ways in which gender, class, migration status, race, and other attributes of people in our community are used to exclude them (or include them) from decision-making? IaCS presents faculty experts to address these questions in order to facilitate an informed conversation on what is sure to be an exciting and important night.

Panelists: (Right to Left):

  • Jane Ku, PhD, MA, BA, UW Associate Professor & Chair of Graduate Studies, Sociology/Women and Gender Studies
  • Ronjon Paul Datta, PhD, MA, BAH, Bth, UW Associate Professor and Member of the Graduate Faculty, Sociology and Criminology
  • Emmanuelle Richez, PhD, MA, BA, UW Associate Professor, Political Science
