This week on the APL nextED Mini-Pod, we are joined by Dr. Mangala Subramaniam for part 2 of her special two-part episode as she continues to speak about her experiences creating support for diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.
Committee work provides institutions with a way to bring fresh perspectives into ongoing conversations, but what happens when the same faculty are volunteering for every committee? Dr. Mangala Subramaniam and her staff have strived to create diverse and highly motivated committees at Purdue University to allow their DEI work to flourish.
This week, Dr. Subramaniam joins host Kathleen Gibson to discuss the ways that she recruits and motivates faculty and staff to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion at Purdue University.
Mangala Subramaniam is Professor of Sociology, Butler Chair and Director of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence at Purdue University, West Lafayette. In her current administrative role, she focuses on providing opportunities to enhance leadership skills and professional development for faculty. Her various publications are reflective of her expanded research interests in the areas of gender and leadership, careers in the academy, and inclusive excellence.
Dr. Subramaniam is the current State Co-Director of the American Council on Education (ACE) Women’s Network of Indiana and was an Associate Editor of Social Problems which is one of the top four journals in sociology. For more information, see www.mangalasubramaniam.com
