#GoodRead | Can We Finally End the All-Male Panel?
As years passed, I couldn’t help but notice that men were still more likely to be regarded as experts than women. I couldn’t help but wonder why conference organizers still allowed men to dominate as panelists, keynote speakers, and award winners. I couldn’t help but feel (again) that higher education was not the inclusive space that some academics imagined it to be.
So I began voting with my feet. I stopped attending panels and keynotes that featured only white men and made sure to attend sessions that featured women and people of color.
