I had the pleasure today of attending (and paying for refreshments) for a program titled: Creating Confident Girls, Cultivating Women Who Lead, put on by a local organization called Ruling Our Experiences (Rox)
Rox' mission "IS TO EQUIP GIRLS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS NECESSARY TO LIVE HEALTHY, INDEPENDENT,PRODUCTIVE AND VIOLENCE-FREE LIVES."
Being the father of three, two of whom are young women, interested in STEM fields and entering (or soon to be entering) the workforce, this is a subject I am personally interested in.
During the discussion today, a long-time colleague (and good friend) commented something to the effect "If you look around the University, most of the administration is 6'4" middle-aged white guys."
Good think I'm only 6'3".
I wouldn't want to be part of the problem.
