Walker-Johnson To Discuss Gender Equality in Academia at London Roundtable

Geneva Walker-Johnson, dean of students and chief student affairs officer at Old Dominion University, will be part of an international roundtable discussion on "Women in the University: Problems and Prospects," July 11-16.

Walker-Johnson will join a small interdisciplinary group of scholars who have a particular interest in gender equality in the education establishment at the Oxford Round Table held in London.  She plans to present a paper that addresses one of the Round Table discussion topics, "Hidden hierarchies and gender."

Topics to be discussed at this year's sessions include:

• Traditional institutional restrictions on women's leadership

• Invisible ceilings and the rationalization of disparities

• Sexual discrimination and consequences

• Culture of the institution and gender inequality

• Hidden hierarchies and gender

• Factors affecting promotion, tenure and compensation.
