Recognizing Invisible Labor

May 6, 2022 @ 12:00 am 1:30 pm

The Center for Racial Justice presents:
Transforming Structures of Whiteness in University Leadership Day 3:Recognizing Invisible Labor in the University: Ways Forward

Recent research and social movements have highlighted ways that racism and sexism remain entrenched in the academy. Patterns of faculty workload show clear inequities, with faculty from historically minoritized groups disproportionately doing more service, diversity and mentoring work, with women faculty doing more teaching and service. These activities are essential to university functioning, yet are often invisible and unrewarded, leading to lower productivity and decreased retention. In this event, our panelists will discuss examples of promising practices and policies that have been developed both within the University of California system and beyond, for recognizing and rewarding invisible labor.
